Beyond the Veil: A Day of Remembrance

During the Celtic festival of Samhain, when it was believed that the veil separating this world from the next was at its thinnest, people provided hospitality for dead ancestors. Even if you are not a pagan (or a pagan at heart), it is a good time to acknowledge loved ones who are no longer with us and keep them close through memory. Come slip behind the veil for just for a moment to light a candle in memory of someone who gave joy or meaning to your life. If you would like, bring a photograph or memento to place on the memory altar. You may share a brief detail that brings them back for you or light your candle in silence.
