Hosted by the CAYA Choir & 2017 Wildflower Initiates

Saturday, October 28,

Open to all, children must be closely supervised by a parent at all times.

This is our ritual honoring those who have gone beyond, who have built the cultures we have inherited, who innovated, dared, led, and served humanity and the Earth with honor, who lived in ways we admire, and who brought forth ideas that have shaped us or educated us.

Our community gathers for our annual devotional to the Ancestors and the cthonic deities associated with the mysteries of death. This year, we are especially honoring Lilith, Jord, Cailleach, and Morta.

At this ritual we also honor our ceremonial Winter King, Queen, and Fool.

Please feel free to bring an Ancestor photo for the altar, and a clearly-labelled dish to share during the cakes and ale portion of the ritual.
