      The Ancestor Vigil

      Each year, at this time, we come together as a diverse community to honor our Ancestors, the Beloved Dead and those who have died in the past year. We pray for and honor the victims of the European Inquisitions. This powerful commemoration has changed llittle in the decades it has been presented. There are altars to hold memento mori.. There is a candle-lighting station to bring brightness to our community mourning. There are prayers and songs, grief and love. This is a deeply solemn ritual and is not suitable for young children. The Ancestor Vigil is open to all respectful people of any (or no) spiritual tradition who want to be in community to honor the Dead. Please wear the mourning colors of your tradition.

      Cost: Free - Donations to The Mother Grove Goddess Temple are not required, but greatly appreciated. We accept non-perishable food items for our food pantry to aid those in need in our community. Thank you.
