Samhain: The End of the Old and the Beginning of the New

At this time of year when nature sleeps, we pause and consider our own humanity as temporal and as eternal beings” Book of Kells.

Admission:  €15.00 (incl. tea/coffee)

Samhain is traditionally the beginning of the Celtic year- marking the end of the old and the beginning of a whole new cycle. Samhain was that time of year when our ancestors believed that the Ceil Ait or the thin veil between time and eternity could easily become transparent.  In was at this season that the Christian Community chose to celebrate the feast of All Saints and All Souls

Celtic Christians believed that the saints were with them as they went about their daily tasks.

Esther de Waal in The Celtic Way of Prayer, says “Celtic Saints are approachable, close at hand, woven quite naturally into life …..”

Samhain is a time for deepening our inner journey.

At our Samhain celebration we will revere the memory of all those who have walked the journey of life before us and contemplate the end of the old and the beginning of the new through:

  • Story
  • Reflection and Meditation
  • Symbolism
  • Music
