Blue Christmas: a Service of Reflection for the Longest Night

Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014 5:30 pm
St. Andrew’s Cathedral

Blue Christmas, a time of reflection and hope

Blue Christmas, a time of reflection and hope

We traditionally think of the holiday season as a time of joy and abundance, but for some the pressure to celebrate and be jolly can be overwhelming. Life situations and loss can make Christmas a difficult time for people dealing with worry and grief. This is a service of light in the midst of darkness.

On Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014 at 5:30 pm in the Cathedral we will gather for “Blue Christmas: a Service of Reflection for the Longest Night”. Held on the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, it recognizes that there is darkness in all our lives, that not everyone is merry at Christmastime. Through music, silent meditation, scripture, and healing prayer, we reach out to acknowledge sadness with comfort and quiet remembrance, to reflect on the losses we have experienced and to remember together, whatever our spiritual path, the real reason for the season: that we are not alone, and that light will come again.

UH Choirs Fall Concert – MASS

University of Hawaii Choral Ensembles
Miguel Felipe, director

MASS
For centuries, composers have poured their creative energies into setting these monumental texts of the Latin Mass. The movements—Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus & Benedictus, and Agnus Dei—have been set countless times as the richness of choral music has grown. This fall, the UH Choirs present the mass like you’ve never heard it before: each movement by a different composer and marking a different place and time. And, because there’s just too much amazing music to sing, the choirs will sing the full cycle twice over! Don’t miss this eclectic tour through sacred music from around world… and the last 750 years!

Cost:
$10 General Admission; $6 Seniors, UH stud/fac/staff
