On Sunday, Oct. 28, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “All Hallows Eve: Honoring the Spirits of Our Ancestors,” presented by Julie Loar.
Loar points out that, “Our popular holiday of Halloween has its roots with the ancient Celts. This time of year is also celebrated as a time to honor and invoke departed ancestors and spirits in many cultures.”
Julie will describe the origins of our holiday icons and symbols, and explore Halloween customs and traditions from around the world.
She adds that, “It is universally considered a time when the veil between the seen and unseen is thin.”
Award-winning author Julie Loar is one of the lay leaders of the Pagosa UU Fellowship and is now chair of the Worship Committee. She is also the program director for the Archuleta County Education Center.
The children’s service is provided during the main service and centers on the Seven Unitarian Universalist Association Principles, as well as the UUA’s children’s curriculum, “Love Surrounds Us.”
The main service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
