Solas-Dec2014“Solas” Celtic Winter Gathering December 7th

St John’s Episcopal Church on 1419 Pine Street in Boulder is offering an evening of Celtic music and worship. On Sunday December 7th at 6:00pm the church will hold a gathering in the tradition of Celtic Christianity. Some of the hallmarks of Celtic Christianity are hospitality, equality, and inclusion; a deep connection with the earth as mother; the engagement of poetry, art, story-telling, and song; and experiential participatory worship that draws in all the senses.

Celtic musicians Jessie Burns (fiddle), Margot Krimmel (harp and vocals), Beth Gadbaw (drums and vocals), and Annie Sirotniak (guitar) will offer beautiful and meditative music and lead attendees in song.

For additional information, see this article.  View/download a flyer for the service here.
