The Feast of Jonah : Food, Music, and the Liturgical Arts

Sunday, Sept 28, 5pm

The Feast of Jonah is traditionally celebrated the Sunday following the Autumnal Equinox, when the hours of darkness begin to surpass the hours of light in a day. Long before Christianity established this feast, the Equinox was marked by rituals in most every culture. It can be seen as a time when we make the first steps toward death, on many levels. It is a time of turning inward, of going down into ourselves, our dens, the earth. It is a period of contemplation.
