Celebration of the Winter Solstice

Dec 21, 2021 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

For the northern half of Earth (the Northern Hemisphere), the winter solstice occurs annually on December 21st or 22nd. This is the shortest day and longest night of the year when the sun appears to be at its lowest in our sky.

Our celebration will reflect how in the depths of great darkness there is a turning point. The powerful symbolism of light shining into the darkness of the tomb at Newgrange at winter solstice time is a recognition of the belief of our ancestors that light will triumph over darkness.  It is the same belief that has sustained people in our Judeo-Christian tradition as we read in the words of the prophet Isaiah: “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. On those who live in a land of deep shadow, a light has shone.”

We hope you will be able to join us in person or online as we celebrate the rebirth of the sun, our star, and the birth of the Son of God.
