Christmas blues? Episcopal church offers service for those feeling down at holiday

From the Episcopal Church of St. Paul and St. James:

NEW HAVEN - Brightly wrapped packages, Christmas trees, holiday parties, holly and the scent of pine, unending upbeat carols in shops and malls, visits from friends and family, baking and cooking, food everywhere--and the awed, hushed joy of welcoming a tiny infant to our world and our hearts--these are the images and memories of Christmas most of us celebrate and treasure.

But each year some people--the grieving, those who are lonely or feel hopeless--dread the approach of the holiday season. They have no heart for the cheer and the bustle, the anticipation and the excitement.

Our Blue Christmas service offers a chance to gather together and turn our sorrow into hope.


The service will be held at 5 p.m. Dec. 22 at the Episcopal Church of St. Paul and St. James, Chapel and Olive streets, New Haven.
