Blue Christmas? Our first return to Healing Masses will be on Sunday, December 10th at 11:00AM

For those who have experienced loss, the joy of the holiday season can often feel elusive and out of reach. As a result, churches like Saint Miriam, around the world have adopted the practice of having a “Blue Christmas” service during the Advent season. These services are designed to provide space for prayer, reflection, and remembrance amidst the twinkling lights and holiday hustle and bustle.

This year, in the place of a “Blue Christmas” service, we are holding a “Service for the Weary” inspired by our Advent theme at the 11:00AM Healing Mass on December 10th.

This service follows four beautiful simple movements:

  • Gathering
  • The Word
  • Response
  • Sending

Friends, this service is for you. Bring your grief. Bring your weariness. Bring your fatigue. Bring your fears and doubts, and allow yourself a quiet space to reflect and draw near to God.

May you find peace in your journey to Christmas by pausing with us in Advent on the night of the year with the least light present.

Join us for this truly amazing opportunity to be embraced by the love of God.
