Sunday, October 13th Schedule

A musical Sunday service at Blue Hills Unitarian-Universalist fellowship will be offered through the talents of FEBRUARY SKY, folksingers Phil Cooper & Susan Urban. “Hearken Now, the Darkness Comes”, a celebration of the last-harvest holiday of Samhain will begin at 10:00 a.m., October 13th.  In the course of the service, ancient traditions are observed in reflection of their significance in our modern lives.

The Celtic word “Samhain” means “summer’s end”, a holiday noting the beginning of winter and a time for giving thanks for a good harvest, and also the time of year when the veil between the worlds of the living and dead is said to be the thinnest.  The dead are invited back for loving remembrance, so all are invited to bring a photo or memento of a departed loved one to place on our Samhain altar.
