Samhain – We Remember Them
Please join us as we honor our ancestors. It is our tradition at UUFA to honor our loved ones and ancestors who have passed on during our annual Samhain service. We cherish our memory of them and keep them alive in our hearts by remembering them. The Celtic celebration of Samhain involved giving thanks for the final harvest and preparing to usher in the dark half of the year. Traditional Samhain observations included lighting bonfires, gourds and later pumpkins to ward away unwanted spirits and provide light for the long winter. Please join us this year for a virtual service and we invite you to bring a photo of your loved one(s) and share with us a few of your memories of them during our service.
NOTE: There’s a special Zoom set up for this Sunday. It’s not our usual Zoom login. We’ll revert to the usual Zoom login next Sunday.
Unitarian Universalist is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Topic: Honoring our Ancestors – UUFA Annual Samhain service
Time: Nov 1, 2020 11:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
