As the holiday season approaches, emotions often run high. While many are filled with joy and anticipation, for others, it can be a time of loneliness, sadness, or remembrance of loved ones no longer with us. The world seems to focus on the "holly and jolly," leaving little room for those whose hearts are hurting. If you find yourself in this place, feeling out of step with the festive spirit surrounding you, Saint Mark's Lutheran Church offers a haven of hope and healing.
Every year, Saint Mark's Lutheran Church holds a special service known as 'The Longest Night.' This service is dedicated to providing solace and comfort to those grappling with grief, loss, or any other heavy burden during the holiday season. No matter where you are on your faith journey, you are welcome at St. Mark's. It is a place to hold those feelings and remember that God is with us, even in the most challenging times.
The Longest Night service is an annual event that takes place close to the winter solstice, the longest night of the year. It acknowledges that the holidays can be a difficult time for many, and provides a space for people to come together and find comfort in their faith. The service is filled with soothing music, candle lighting, and prayers of hope and healing.
The service will take place at Saint Mark's Lutheran Church, located at 508 Harry Street, Conshohocken, PA. The Service will be held in our main worship space the sanctuary. Enter through either sets of the Red doors on the front of the church.
