The Annual Ancestor Vigil

26 Oct 2012

This Ancestor Vigil is the annual ceremony to honor the Ancestors, the Recently Dead, the Beloved Long Dead and the victims of the European Inquisitions. This year's ritual begins at 7 PM in the parish hall with a silent meditation for anyone who cares to sit in contemplation and light a candle for a soul that has passed the Veil. The main ritual will begin at 8. Congregants may bring tokens of their own Ancestors for the central altar and are encouraged to dress in the mourning colors of their spiritual tradition. This event is open to the respectful public and a donation of $5 is suggested. Parish Hall of the Cathedral of All Souls in Biltmore Village. Contact Mother Grove Goddess Temple for more info
