We can’t remember the last time we set foot in church. It’s easily been half a decade. Like some of our friends feel about making tamales or going to Broadway musicals, it’s just not our thing.
But this time of year we often get nostalgic for Christmas Eve candlelight service, easily the event we looked forward to more than any other during our childhood.
Now that we’re grown (and super-gay), we’re so happy to spend December 24 with great friends, over cocktails and a rousing couple of verses of “Joy to the World” while holding up lighters.
Yet we know some of you want something a little more traditional.
And that’s exactly what you’ll find at the Christmas Eve Candlelight Holy Communion Services at Cathedral of Hope, our city’s wonderful LGBT place of worship.
Rev. Dr. Neil G. Cazares-Thomas will be leading the services filled with Christmas carols, candlelight and celebration. It’s a night of customs and rituals that will bring back all the very best memories. If you want to join us for our tradition afterward, just let us know.
We’ll have a margarita waiting.
