First Tuesdays with Sassafras Grove: Lore Meeting – Saturnalia

First Tuesdays:  Lore Meeting

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Moonstones Metaphysical Haven, Dormont, PA

7:00pm – 9:00pm


Join us to explore some of the ancient and modern  traditions associated with the Winter Solstice, Saturnalia and this turning of the Wheel of the Year.


We’ll look at some of the myths and traditions surrounding the Roman God Saturn, a deity who rules wealth, agriculture, and the peaceful arts, and how we continue and enliven those traditions today.


We’ll learn how to make “God’s Eye” ornaments and maybe sing a Solstice Carol or two!

Moonstones is located at 2892 West Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA  15216, on the corner of Potomac Avenue and West Liberty. The shop is located a few blocks from Potomac Station on the Red Line T line and right on the 41 Bower Hill bus line.  For more detailed directions, see Moonstones’ web site at…/Where.html.

Our events are free and open to the community, but we do rely on the donations of those who are able to defray the cost of space rental and supplies. Please remember, even a dollar can help make the difference between having our costs covered and Grove Members having to pay them out of our own pockets. Support your local Druids!

Sassafras Grove also supports Animal Friends’ Chow Wagon Program.  If you can, please consider bringing a package of cat or dog food (canned or dry), cat litter, food/water bowls, treats, or toys for donation to the Program. Donations must be new and unopened. Chow Wagon serves over 1000 local families by distributing food and toys through food pantries. See for more information about Animal Friends.

For more information about this event, Sassafras Grove in general, or our parent church Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship (ADF), please feel free to visit or email us at


Bright Blessings,
