A Solemn High Mass for the Feast of Thomas Merton
Tuesday, December 10th, 7pm
Church
Sink from your shallows, soul, into eternity.
We touch the rays we cannot see.
We feel the light that seems to sing — Thomas Merton

Join us on Tuesday, December 10th at 7pm to commemorate Thomas Merton. Trappist monk, mystic, theologian, writer, social activist and interfaith pioneer, Merton was one of the most influential Christians of the 20th century. The story of his conversion, monastic vocation and social witness, cut short by an untimely end, left an indelible mark on the world. His writings continue to have an impact, inspiring successive generations of contemplatives, activists and seekers. On the 50th anniversary of his death, we will celebrate a solemn high mass with incense and plainsong, weaving many of Merton’s eloquent texts into a beautifully contemplative liturgy.

A Contemplative Holy Eucharist in Advent
Sunday, December 15th, 5pm
Church
Do you long for more silence in your worship? Would you like to sink more deeply into music, reflection, Word and Sacrament? Join us in the church on Sunday Evening, 12/16 at 5pm for the first of our monthly Contemplative Holy Eucharists. This month we will enter in to the Advent theme of holy waiting. We’ll gather in the church for Eucharist and in the parlor after the service for conversation and refreshment. We hope you will join us. This service is a wonderful way to steep ourselves in the Holy in preparation for the week ahead.

A Quiet Christmas Service
Wednesday, December 18th, 7pm
Church
Sometimes the holiday season is not “the most wonderful time of the year,” and for those of us experiencing loss or grief, Christmas can be an especially difficult time. The death of a beloved friend or family member, a divorce or job loss, an illness or frightening diagnosis or myriad other personal struggles can make this time of year particularly tender.

At St. Barnabas, we offer a special worship service – A Quiet Christmas Holy Eucharist – for those who find themselves sad, grieving, or in need of any sort of healing during this Christmas season. This service is open to everyone, and is especially meaningful for those who are experiencing loss.

For more information, please contact Rev. Karen, revkaren@stbbi.org.
