BBUUC’s Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans presents
“Celebration of the Ancestors” with Paolo Santo
Worship Leader: Meghan Kaminski
Special Music by Lynn Wadley on Psaltery
About our Service:
Join the BBUUC in honoring the Ancestors in this special Sunday service presented by Jacksonville CUUPS. Please bring a photo representing your departed loved ones to place in honor upon the memorial altar. We will call to the ancestors for guidance, learn how various traditions honor their dead, and celebrate those we love who have crossed past the veil.
This year the service will also include a mini-sermon by Medium Paolo Santo about the world that lies beyond the veil.
Following the service, we will share a feast in fellowship with our Ancestors and each other. Please bring your best spooky finger food or a favorite dish of your Beloved Dead to share with the living and the dead that will be in attendance.
This is an open event: individuals and families of all faiths, paths, traditions, and religions are warmly welcomed. Childcare is provided during the service for those who may need it, but children are also more than welcome to be present during the ritual.
