Rev Dr Patrick T. O’Neill preaching

‘There’s No Place Like Home’

This is the time of year when Home is a very tender notion for many people.  We say there’s no place like home for the holidays.  We say home is where the heart is.  But in a mobile society where the average person will move some twenty times in a lifetime, where exactly does the ideal notion of “home” reside?  Is there any one continuous notion of home through the ages, through a culture?  Where is home for you these days?  Come join us today.  Nuestra casa, su casa.

‘Winter Solstice Celebration’

Drawing from Celtic and other traditions we will celebrate the darkest time of the year and the return of the Light. Led by members of our “Wheel of the Year” group.
