The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua announces that members Karen Taverna and Amy O'Connell will lead the service on Sunday. Traditions of Samhain will explore the fall traditions that are derived from Samhain, the ancient celebration of the wheel of the year turning. As the harvest is gathered and thanks are given for the growing season, it is time to look toward the winter months to reflect while the earth slumbers. People attending the service are invited to bring a picture of loved ones (family, friends, pets) so that they may be honored. With these photos, those gathered will take a moment to remember those who have passed as a collage at the front of the church is created.
During the service, Religious Exploration classes will be held for children grades K-4. Childcare for those less than 5 years of age will also be provided.
