Christmas Pageant on Sunday at 5 PM
Christmas Pageant is Sunday, Dec. 16 at 5 PM: The Christmas Pageant is a long and glorious tradition at St. Cross! It is its own service in which the youth and children tell the story of the birth of Christ. Our children and youth have been practicing all month (with a few more practices to go as Sunday approaches), and this is a beautiful, peaceful and fun service for all who come. Click here to view a detailed pageant preparation schedule from Rev. Robin! See you this Sunday at 5 PM!
The Longest Night Tonight (Wed., December 12): Wednesday night the 12th at 7 pm, we’ll honor the difficult moments of the holiday season with our Longest Night service in the Chapel, often referred to as the Blue Christmas service. It’s not for nothing that Christmas comes in the midst of the longest nights; by honoring the arrival of Jesus the Light at the very darkest time of the year, we announce that God is at work in the dark, preparing us for something that will arrive and begin lightening our world. But for dawn to come, we need to embrace the longer and longer nights, and we do so by honoring the Longest Night each year.
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day: On December 24 at 4 PM, we will have our Family Christmas Eve Service, and at 9 PM we will have Carols followed by our Christmas Eve Festive Holy Eucharist. On Christmas Day the 25th, our Christmas Morning Eucharist is at 10 AM.
