Grove of the Rising Phoenix announces...

Winter Solstice

When: Dec. 21st. 2013
Where: Phoenix, Arizona

Public Winter Solstice

Event Details: This will be an ADF style Irish rite, however the Grove is not in charge of this event. This is an event put on by the Irish Cultural Center and GRP is their guest to put on ritual.

This year’s Solstice celebrations at the Irish Cultural Center in Phoenix are anticipated to draw a larger attendance than past years, particularly since celebration of the occasion falls on the evening of Saturday, December 21st, and those attending won’t have to deal with normal rush hour traffic.

Solstice, now as in ancient times, marks the longest night of the year, whereby the Sun is at its lowest elevation in the sky. The return of the Sun from its most southern position on the horizon has always been of great ceremonial significance, in addition to serving as a celestial clock. In Phoenix the occasion is marked by music and poetry. Ribbons are placed on the branches of the special Ribbon Tree, to spiritually unite us with those no longer here. A parade from the hunger memorial on site takes us to the bonfire where the Grove of the Rising Phoenix shares their ritual traditions.

This year, the customary special Irish dinner will be served starting at 4:15 p.m. Note, that reservations for the food are required, call the Irish Cultural Center at 602-258-0109. Outside ceremonies start at sunset (5:00 p.m.) Inside the Great Hall there will be traditional Irish Music following.
