Come one and all and celebrate Samhain with the Sinnissippi Tuath Grove, ADF! We will have a Ritual of Remembrance of our Ancestors, as we have in the past, and will make time for participants to honor their own ancestors. We will set up an Ancestors Shrine, so if you have a picture or item to add to the shrine for this celebration please bring it.
For this Rite, we will honor the Great Queen, the Washer at the Ford, Collector of the Souls of the Dead, An Morrighan. We will also honor The Dark One, Inbetweener, Horned One who stands between the Darkness and the Light, Donn, Lord of the Dead and Keeper of Teach Duinn, the House of the Dead.
After the celebration we will have a potluck feast – please bring a dish to share, as well as a Otherworld Ball. Dance music will be provided and DJ’d by Mary.
Costuming is encouraged – please come as a denizen of the Otherworld.
A $5.00 donation is requested (but never required) to help offset the cost of the site.
If you have any questions, please let us know!
