Blue Christmas Celebration Shines Light Into Darkness

For many of us, Christmas is a tough time, and can be the occasion for “feeling blue” in the midst of the culture focused on being happy and celebrating. At such times, we need to take time to acknowledge our sadness, loss, and grief.

The anguish of broken relationships, of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation, the loss of a loved one, and even the loss of a dear family pet—all can contribute to a feeling of being alone, of ‘feeling blue,’ in the midst of the season around us.

The Cathedral invites you to join in sharing a Blue Christmas service on Wednesday, December 21, at 6:30 p.m. in St. Mary’s Chapel. We invite you to move from “feeling blue” to experiencing the wonder and hope of Christmas. For questions contact the Rev. Dr. Bill Harkins, bharkins@stphilipscathedral.org, or Canon Wallace Marsh.
