Natura Divina

Outdoor Celebration Honors Cross-Quarters and More

The half way point between solstices and equinoxes are known as “cross-quarters” and are significant feast days in the Celtic calendar. Come to “Natura Divina” at Sinsinawa Mound from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, to honor the Gaelic feast of Imbolc—which is also St. Brigid Day—and the feast of Candlemas. This outdoor, ecumenical gathering is centered on honoring the sacred cycles of the year and situating ourselves within the wider community of creation with fire and ritual, community and song, and prayer and contemplation. Our gathering will draw on the liturgical calendar, Celtic spirituality and its feasts, as well as the growing Wild Church Network. We will meet inside the main entrance and proceed outdoors.

No registration is required, and a freewill offering will be appreciated.
