Ostara, the Spring Equinox

Come celebrate Ostara, the Spring Equinox!

Saturday, March 12
gather at 7:00 PM
ritual begins promptly at 7:30 PM

History and archaeology show us that our ancestors worshiped the Divine as feminine, masculine, and sometimes both. While more recent myths have focused entirely on the masculine, this year’s Ostara ritual will focus on the feminine. Come celebrate the Goddess as Divine Mother, as we welcome her manifestation in the coming Spring into our lives.

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

This ritual is suitable for all ages. Due to building reconstruction, we have no nursery and are unable to provide childcare.

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

Samhain – The Spiral Labyrinth

Saturday, October 31
gathering begins at 7:00 PM
ritual begins promptly at 7:30 PM

Please join the Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans on Saturday, October 31 as we celebrate Samhain, the final harvest festival of the year.   We will gather at DUUF at 7:00 pm and begin promptly at 7:30 pm.

This is Samhain, the season of the Thinning of the Veil, when the ordinary world and the world of the Gods and Ancestors draw close, and perhaps, overlap. As you walk the Spiral Labyrinth, we encourage you to listen. Listen for your beloved ancestors and listen for the Gods and Goddesses of our ancestors.

In case of inclement weather, the Spiral Labyrinth will be set up in Miller Hall.

Please bring a picture or other memento for our Altar of the Ancestors. Please bring an item of food or drink to share after the ceremony.  Donations of a dollar or three to help defray expenses will be appreciated but are not required.

Children who can participate maturely and respectfully are welcome to join in.  We will have childcare for younger children.

For more information, please contact John Beckett at JohnFranc@aol.com or 972-948-9211
