BELTANE

Sunday May 3 @ 4:00 P.M.

At the PFW Children’s Garden

Located on the PFW Campus (A short walk behind the University’s Williams Theater) This event is held outside, please bring a chair or blanket.

 Come outside and celebrate Beltane with us as we joyfully awaken to the blessings of Spring and the glorious “re-greening” of Mother Earth. Signs of fertility are springing forth in our yards, fields and creative minds. Together we will enjoy Maypole dancing, music, singing, flowers, gifts and inspiring ritual. Like our ancestors, we welcome the return of the fairy folk as we embrace the sun and its energy.

Magic abounds!



SUMMER SOLSTICE

Friday June 19 @ 7:00 P.M.

At the PFW Children’s Garden

Located on the PFW Campus (A short walk behind the University’s Williams Theater) This event is held outside, please bring a chair or blanket.

The wheel has turned and now we enthusiastically welcome the festival of abundance, warmth, activity and creativity. Join us in our circle as we enrich our souls through sharing and ceremony on the longest day of the year. Our colorful outdoor ritual honors the four elements and especially the Sun, our Daystar, at the peak of its eternal power, with drumming, dancing and chanting. Ancient Celts celebrated with hillside bonfires using the ashes as an offering to the crops.

Light and abundance to all!



LAMMAS

Friday July 31 @ 7:00 P.M.

Located at Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren

2810 Beacon St., Fort Wayne, IN 46805

Celebrating the first grain harvest of the year, our seeds and intentions planted earlier, are now manifesting. Aware of the cycle of life as the grains, fruits and vegetables surrender in order to nourish us, their seeds will be reborn next Spring. The Corn Dolly on our alter reminds us that the Corn Spirit will survive the Winter and reproduce. Through ritual, we connect to one another, another, offer thanks to Gaia, celebrate the symbolic rhythms of nature and draw upon its power.  After we walk the Labyrinth, pondering the seed’s journey to harvest, we’ll nourish ourselves with homemade Lammas bread!



Governor Holcomb lifted restrictions on COVID-19 and Indiana is now under phase 2 guidelines. At Sophia's Portico, we are taking a cautious approach regarding the reopening and facilitating of our new and ongoing programs scheduled for the month of May. Our gatherings would most probably include persons described as "vulnerable" due to age or underlying health conditions. Face masks and social distancing also remain under advisement and cannot be practiced in our small space.

Therefore, we are saddened to announce that we are looking to reopen and resume our programs after May 24 when phase 3 has been declared as safe.

Be safe, stay well and looking to reconnect in the near future!
