White Oak Grove CUUPs is pleased to announce that in addition to our regular Sunday Discussion groups, in 2019 we will be holding several new holiday rituals! Over the years many people have asked us to include more rituals in our programing so this year we are busting out two brand new rituals (Beltane ,Lughnasadh, and Samhain) open to all.
November 2nd, 2019 – Ancestor Ritual & Halloween Potluck
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATE FOR THIS EVENT! This ritual will take the lessons from the “Ancestor Worship Today” discussion (CUUPs October 6th, 12:00pm) and put them into practice in a ritual format. This is not a specifically a Samhain ritual, nor will it be predominantly Wiccan in format. Rather, it will combine elements from global cultures to create a ceremony in which we honor our ancestors and heroes within a sacred space.
– Potluck will begin at 6:00PM
– Ancestor Ritual at 7:00PM – Ritual written by Kristen.
If you would like to place an image, or representation of a departed loved one on the ancestor altar make sure that it is disposable. Small votive offerings for the ancestor altar are also acceptable.
– Dessert Buffet & Samhain Party directly following the ritual
Including all the fun of previous years including music, raffles, and a costume contest.
Grab a friend and come celebrate!
December 18th, 2019 – Yule Ritual
Wonderfull Wednesday Yule Ritual and Cookie Potluck.
