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.
