Sassafras Grove Summer Solstice at Pagans in the Park!

When: Saturday, June 11, 2016 (Closing Rite starting around 6:00 PM)

Where: Harrison Hills Park (The Broken Branch & Rachel Carson Pavilion)

Sassafras Grove is pleased to be presenting our Summer Solstice rite this year as the closing rite for Pagans in the Park held at Harrison Hills Park (http://www.alleghenycounty.us/parks/harrison-hills/index.aspx).  Our ritual honors the Sun itself and in all its deified manifestations, acknowledging that at Summer Solstice the Sun empowers the seeds within ourselves that we fertilized by our work at Beltane.  We seek the Sun’s blessings upon the work of our greater community as we learn from our past, acknowledge our present, and envision our future.

Bring:

  •       Offerings for the Sun itself or the solar deity of your choice
  •       A memory of an experience in the Pittsburgh Pagan Community for which you are especially grateful (to write down as part of our group offering)
  •       A chair or blanket if you wish to sit during the rite
