Winter Solstice 2017 | Deep in the Dark of the Longest Night


Event Details




The Universalist Unitarian Church of Santa Paula presents a Winter Solstice Celebration on Thursday, December 21 at 7:00 PM in the Sanctuary of the church. The church is located at 740 E Main Street in Santa Paula. “A Winter Solstice Singing Ritual” is a celebration of the Darkness and the Light with Songs and Stories adapted from Julie Forest Middleton and Stasa Morgan-Appel. Solstice is a planetary-wide celebration of the longest night and the returning of the Light. Many religions have a Sun Child born at this time of year. We celebrate Solstice by going down into the darkness, getting quiet, becoming empty, and then receiving the Light. This is participatory, non-denominational ritual. The Solstice Singers will be directed by Maddie Sifantus. The Narrator will be Allan Noel. Harp will be played by John Robles.
