CHRISTMAS SERVICES
St. Martin’s Episcopal Church
St. Martin’s is having a Blue Christmas Service on Saturday, December 20th at 4:30 PM. The holiday season can be a difficult time for many people. Death of a loved one, loss of a job, illness and many other circumstances can make Christmas time painful instead of joyful.
The quiet service will be in a space in which you can recognize the pains and losses in our lives and turn the focus towards the truth of Christmas and how this event celebrated actually has everything to do with the grief you bear. All are welcome. If you have questions about the service, please call Reverend Laura Peckham at 512-6710. St. Martin’s is located at 900 Main Street on Route 2 in Palmyra.
