December 21 – Yule Festival
Please join us for the Earth Centered traditions group’s annual Winter Solstice Ritual. We will celebrate the Shortest Day of the year on Saturday, December 21 at 6 pm. We turn the wheel of the year and bring back the sun, a chance to leave things in the old year and gather others for the new. The ritual will be followed by a pot luck feast and carols in the Parish Hall. For more information, click here.
