New Publication: Holy Night Prayers and Meditations for People of the Night

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the San Francisco Night Ministry, Wilgefortis published a book of prayers written by friends of the San Francisco Night Ministry.

Holy Night offers thoughtful prayers and meditations for night-owls, bar hoppers, individuals who are homeless, hungry, experiencing poverty, are lonely, anxious, working the night-shift, having a hard time sleeping, experiencing mental health issues or simply having a hard time falling asleep. Written by friends of the San Francisco Night Ministry, these prayers and meditations are deeply rooted in the nighttime needs of a diverse urban city. Some are rooted in a particular tradition, others are for people who have faith but are not religious or are unsure what they believe.
