Moonspirit CUUPS – Samhain ~Sunday, October 29th, beginning at 4pm

Moonspirit CUUPS

Invites you to our

Samhain Ritual & Potluck
Sunday, October 29th

Samhain, pronounced “sah-win”, is a Celtic word meaning “summer’s end”. Most folks relate Samhain to Halloween, but for many modern pagans, it is considered a sabbat to honor ancestors that came before and friends and family who have passed as well. We will start our gathering with a time for craft making, followed by a potluck dinner and then culminating in ritual.

Craft Making at 4:00pm

Potluck at 5:30pm

Ritual at 7:00pm

For more information, contact Donna Johnston.
