Celebration of Winter Solstice

December 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

The Winter Solstice is deeply rooted in our ancient history, signifying the return of the sun and a reverence for nature. Elements and symbols of the Winter Solstice overlap and recur in almost every known religion.  Come celebrate the connection between the Winter Solstice, “shortest time of daylight,” and the coming of Jesus, “Light of the world.” You will hear stories of solstice rituals, poems, songs, dances and decor and how they were adapted for the Christmas Season. We will create decorations, take a candlelight prayer walk on the labyrinth, and enjoy seasonal refreshments. Join us!

Date & Time: Fri. Dec. 21, from 7 to 8:30pm
Facilitator: Nancy Erts, OP, and Bette Ann Jaster, OP
Fee: Free will donation
