St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary is an inclusive, arts-based, contemplative Christian community that meets at St. Faith's.
We engage our creativity to respond to and connect with the Holy, with one another, and with the broader community. During services, stations are set up around our 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 quiet reflection. We seek the Creator for hope, healing, rest, and sustenance, we remember Jesus, share bread and wine, and extend the invitational love of God. Guest artists join us from time to time. And you do not have to self-identify as an artist to join us. Come as a beloved creation of God!
St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary is a ministry of St. Faith’s Anglican Church. The Reverend Melanie Calabrigo is the priest who gathers this community. The worship space, liturgy, and practices are trauma-informed.
We meet weekly on Sunday evenings at 2:00pm, at St. Faith’s Anglican Church, 7284 Cypress Street, in Vancouver.
