Holidays and Traditions
Throughout the year, we celebrate the major holidays such as Christmas and Easter.
We also celebrate Samhain, Ostara and Yule and other Circle of the Year events. However, as Unitarian Universalists, we have our own unique set of celebrations and traditions that we observe including Flower Ceremony and Water Communion.
Upcoming Holidays and Traditions will be listed here, on the calendar & in the newsletter.
Circle of the Earth Celebration of Lughnasadh
Lughnasadh celebrates the first harvesting of crops, the first of three harvest festivals. The Earth yields up Her first gifts to us … a blessing from the Mother and the product of our human hands. It is a time to celebrate the fruitfulness of the Earth and fruits of our labors. We have sown and nurtured, and now we are reaping the benefits in rhythm with the Earth.
This year’s celebration will be held on Saturday, July 29 at 7PM at the church. Weather permitting, the ritual will be outside. You may wish to bring a blanket or a chair for comfort. Pot luck following the ritual, Please bring a dish to share.
ALL ARE WELCOME!
