Samhain

Each year we celebrate the feast of Samhain.

In Celtic Ireland about 2,000 years ago, Samhain was the division of the year between the lighter half (summer) and the darker half (winter).samhain

Samhain is a festival that celebrates the mysteries of life, death and rebirth. They are at the heart of the Celtic spiritual tradition and the heart of our Christian faith. At Samhain we enter into that space between the ending of one year and the beginning of the next. It is the season that invites us, like the seeds, to embrace the darkness so that new and more abundant life will spring forth when the winter darkness is over.

Christiabrigidsculpturenity incorporated the honoring of the dead into the Christian calendar with All Saints (All Hallows) on November 1st    a feast celebrating the great host of men and women who brought light into the lives of many. This Feast is followed by All Souls on November 2nd when it is customary to remember family members and friends who have made this journey on earth before us.
The evening will include meditation, ritual and story.

All are welcome, and everyone is invited to stay for tea and a chat afterwards.
