Interweavings: Remembering Our Ancestors: Honoring our Beloved Dead 2023
October 26 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm PDT
Sponsored by the Pagan Path
The end of October is marked by many cultures as a sacred time when the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead becomes more porous. Gaelic or Celtic cultures celebrate Samhain and the Christian tradition has honored its dead on All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days. The wonderful animated film “Coco” honors the Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead in exuberant color. Join Process & Faith for a special online Interweavings event, sponsored by the Pagan Path, that will be a service of remembrance for everyone who has lost or grieved a loved one. Participants may want to have a candle to light and/or to bring a photo of their loved one(s).
