Beltane – The Cernunnos Ritual

Beltane – The Cernunnos Ritual
Saturday, May 6
Gathering begins at 7:00 PM
Ritual begins promptly at 7:30 PM

Come join us for our celebration of Beltane, the Celtic fire festival which in ancient times marked the beginning of Summer. We will begin our circle with a traditional Maypole Dance.

Our main working will be a ritual to Cernunnos, the Lord of the Animals and the Lord of the Hunt, the God of the Forest and of Green Growing Things.

It is no surprise that in our era of environmental challenges he is calling to many who share his love for Nature. This ritual will feature a procession, drumming, and dancing.  We will make offerings to Cernunnos and ask for his inspiration and blessing on our work to honor and protect the Earth and all her creatures.

Our circle will be outdoors unless it is raining – please dress for the weather. Children who can participate maturely and respectfully are welcome to join in. We will have childcare available for younger children.

Please bring an item of food or drink to share after the ceremony. Donations help defray costs are appreciated but are not required.

If you have any questions, please contact John Beckett at JohnFranc@aol.com or 972-948-9211.
