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 CUUPS Chapter Celebration of Imbolc
This holiday is especially sacred to the Celtic Fire Goddess, Brigit, patron of smithcraft, healing, midwifery, and poetry. It is the festival of the Maiden, for from this day to March 21st, it is her season to prepare for growth and renewal. The Maiden is honored, as the Bride, on this Sabbat. Home hearth fires are put out and re-lit, and a besom (broom) is placed by the front door to symbolize sweeping out the old and welcoming the new. Candles are lit and placed in each room of the house to honor the re-birth of the Sun.
This year’s celebration of Imbolc will be held on Saturday, February 2, 7PM, at the church. Please bring a dish to share for the pot luck following the ritual.
Our circle is open, and ALL ARE WELCOME!
