|About||St. Hildegard's Sanctuary is an inclusive, arts-based, contemplative Christian community|
St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary is an inclusive, arts-based, contemplative Christian community. We engage creativity to respond to and connect with the Holy, with one another, and with the broader community.
We gather on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish people including the xwməәθkwəәy�əәm (Musqueam), Sk�wx�wú7mesh (Squamish) and Səәl�ílwəәtaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. Our words and actions will reflect our awareness and appreciation of this.
During services stations are set up around the worship space that have creative/kinaesthetic elements, with varying possibilities to paint, write, play with sand or water, light candles, offer prayers, and always there is time and space for reflection. Seeking the Creator for hope, healing, rest, and sustenance, we remember Jesus, share bread and wine, and extend the invitational love of God.
Whether you call St. Hildegard's home - or simply want to visit with us - all are welcome! You do not have to identify as an artist to join us. Come as a beloved creation of God!
We gather every Sunday evening at 6pm
7284 Cypress Street, Vancouver, BC.
All are welcome!
The Reverend Melanie Calabrigo is the priest who gathers this community. The worship space, liturgy, and practices are trauma-informed.
