Trout Lake Abbey

This is the rite of the first glimmers of spring, and the hope of warmer days ahead. In Ireland, this is a time when the ewes begin to show signs of lactation, and candles are no longer needed to see when milking the cows. Here in Trout Lake this time of year, we can have quite a bit of snow. But this year there is snow on the ground but the rains have made the roads clear.
We will be honoring the goddess Brigit, transfunctional Lady of poets and the hearth, of workers in metal, and of healing. Appropriate offerings for Brigit include milk and butter, bread, worked metal items, and poetry. Praise offerings are always welcome!
We will hold this rite indoors in the Sanctuary. Dress warmly for our processional to the Sanctuary.
There will be a potluck following the ritual, held in the main house.
We look forward to seeing you here on Saturday, February 2!
