Holden Evening Prayer

5:00pm to 6:00pm

Location: Church

Holden Evening Prayer was written in the mid 1980’s by Marty Haugen while serving as the musician-in-residence at Holden Village, a Lutheran retreat center in Washington State. This contemplative setting of vespers follows the traditional form of the evening office while using contemporary and expansive language. Prayers, chant, hymns, readings and silence contribute to the reflectiveness of this evening liturgy. It is a liturgy appropriate for all sorts and conditions of spiritual seekers and pilgrims.

Holden Village is a year-round Lutheran Christian center in the North Cascade Mountains. It is the largest retreat center in the nation operating under a special use permit from the United States Department of Agriculture and has been called by some the Taize’ of the U.S.

This liturgy will be offered at 5:00 p.m. in the Nave beginning Sunday, March 12 and running each Sunday through April 2. For further information contact Dean Donatelli.
