A Rite of Remembrance

As darkness gathers and the veil thins, we celebrate the lives of our beloved dead in words and music
…for our ancestors
…for those who gave their lives to save others
…for the victims of oppression
…for the victims of natural disasters
…for we who mourn.

Join us for hauntingly beautiful music and words of healing.
