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 Ostara
Spring Equinox, also known as Ostara, occurs in the middle of March. It marks the beginning of Spring and the time when days and nights are of equal length. The Goddess manifests as Ostara or Eostre with her basket of eggs. She is accompanied by the Hare or Rabbit, a manifestation of the God. Green has been sacred to this Sabbat since ancient times, because it represents the greening of the land with vegetation. This is a festival of new growth.
This years ritual will be held on Friday March 22nd, at the church at 7PM. This ritual will be held indoors. You may wish to bring a dish to share at the potluck following the service.
Our circle is open, and ALL ARE WELCOME!
