On Oct. 28, to celebrate the pagan festival of Samhain, the Mid-Columbia Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will have a service for remembering and honoring departed friends and relatives.
Samhain, pronounced SAH-win, persists in modern times as Halloween.
A formal pagan ritual will be a major part of the service. That ritual will be a way for each person attending to honor an ancestor or loved ones.
Ancient and contemporary pagan symbolism used in the ritual will be explained.
The service will take place at the Rockford Grange, 4262 Barrett Drive, in Hood River at 10 a.m. All are welcome.
