New Year’s Eve Labyrinth Walk with Midnight Eucharist
December 31, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - January 1, 2020 @ 12:30 am
As the old year passes and a new one begins, take time in the quiet, candle-lit space of Saint Mark’s Cathedral on Capitol Hill to pause, look inward, and experience the labyrinth, accompanied by contemplative music by guest musicians. All are welcome.
Walking the labyrinth is a practice with ancient roots, and a microcosm of the spiritual journey. The 40-foot indoor labyrinth is a replica of the one found in the Medieval cathedral of Chartres, as is the new outdoor labyrinth on the front lawn. Additional temporary labyrinths will also be constructed in the cathedral for the event.
For almost two decades labyrinth at Saint Mark’s has been a New Year’s Eve tradition. This Seattle Times article from 2015 explains some of what makes this event special: https://www.seattletimes.com/life/a-maze-of-feelings-at-st-marks-cathedral/
Drop by any time between 6:00pm and midnight. Stay for a few minutes, an hour, or all evening. A free-will donation will be collected. At midnight, a service of Holy Eucharist will be offered at the center of Labyrinth, in observance of the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus.
