The Seasons of Advent and Christmas are not the happiest times of the year for everyone. The Blue Mass is a quiet and prayerful service that recognizes our losses, our struggles, our sadness and our hope during these seasons which can be painful for many people. It is a candlelight service with music and poetry. This service “acknowledges the things in our lives that can steal our Christmas joy helps us to remember the hope that our Savior promises to us.”
During the Season of Advent, a candlelight service of Lessons and Carols, featuring the St. Andrew’s choir, is held at St. Andrew’s. A reception follows for a time of fellowship. This lovely service provides appropriate observation of the Season of Advent which is so often rolled into the Season of Christmas.
The St. Andrew’s Youth (SAY) prepares a breakfast of pancakes, sausage and lots of hot coffee to honor the law enforcement officers who help keep all of us safe in Omaha.
At 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 21st, 2021, the choirs of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, All Saints Episcopal Church, and Trinity Cathedral will join together for the annual celebration of Evensong that has occurred on the first Sunday of Lent for the past 12 years. Evensong is the quintessential musical service in the Anglican tradition. There will be a reception following the service. Everyone at St. Andrew’s is invited to join us for this special commemoration of the Lenten season.
The annual women’s retreat takes place in April. Stay tuned for details!
