Distracted by busyness and artificial light, many people have lost touch with the beauty of the season. Solstices and equinoxes are a time of connection between the heavens and the Earth, the personal and the divine, the inner and the outer, the material and the spiritual.

The celebration of the winter solstice honors the longest night of the year, after which darkness gradually subsides and the days grow progressively longer. We will walk through the historical significance of the solstice, engaging symbols, songs and rituals.

By taking part in ceremonies to celebrate the solstice, we are able to connect more deeply to the natural experience of Earth, which underpins our awareness of the divine and many of our religious traditions. It can enliven our worship and strengthen us for our continued spiritual journey. This is not simply the revival of rituals past, but is partaking in something eternal that permeates our lives, even if we pay little attention to it.

No registration is required. The evening is free and open to the public. River House – IHM Spirituality Center and St. Mary Organic Farm co-sponsor the event. Download the flyer here.

  1. I’ll bet ya when these estrogen filled, druid women aren’t out celebrating the solstice and worshipping mother-earth at Stonehenge they’re giving out communion at their local Novus Ordo church.

    Um, ah, er, you’ll excuse me if I do not accept this invitation.

  3. THE
    WAKING
    OF
    MAN

    Beware goddess green
    Mother earth’s pagan queen
    She’ll recycle man’s faith
    Unto doubt.

    They will question their existence
    Contracept with persistence
    If man does not wake…
    He’s waked out!

  4. “The celebration of the winter solstice honors the longest night of the year, after which darkness gradually subsides and the days grow progressively longer”

    Being is the southern hemisphere, we’re in the midst of summer when the longest day occurs. But, the northern hemisphere is in the midst of winter when the shortest day occurs. So which are they celebrating the longest day or winter? Are they trying to say their celebration for the longest day starts during winter at the shortest day and culminates in summer with the longest day? If they only do this celebration in December, aren’t they leaving out the other half of the planet that has its seasons different from theirs?

  5. Putting it bluntly, in previous times these people would have been up before the Inquisition for practicing witchcraft.
    Given the commandments against idolatry, given the gross insult this paganism is to Almighty God, given that the people promoting this have the gall to call themselves “Catholic women” and “servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary” I often wish we still had an Inquisition.

  6. Come to think of it, I often wish we still had a Catholic hierarchy.
