    This evening reflection will draw on the Christian feast of All Saints ("All  Hallows Eve") and the Celtic New Year ("Samhain") to remember those  who have gone before us, especially our own ancestors. It begins with First  Vespers of All Saints at 5:15 pm followed by a talk and supper at the Morcone Center. We return to Church for Compline and a Ritual of Remembrance. Participants are asked to bring photos of deceased family members, friends and heroes of their lives.

    Father Timothy is recognized as an expert in Celtic studies. He has authored three books on Celtic Spirituality, conducted pilgrimages to Celtic  lands, and has, in collaboration with Mairead Doherty, been giving work-shops on Celtic themes for twenty - one years. 

    Mairead Doherty is a Celtic harpist and trained professional musician.
