Samhain Silent Supper

Weds. Oct 30th 6:30 – 8:00 pm at UU Fellowship Hall

This ritual supper, from the Wiccan holiday of Samhain, honors dead ancestors with a potluck supper eaten in silence. This article in UUWorld describes some of the ritual’s roots. https://www.uuworld.org/articles/halloweens-ritual-roots

For our potluck, you are invited to bring some ‘soul food’ that may come from a family recipe or that reminds you of your ancestors. You are also invited to bring a token or photo of loved ones who have died.

Immigration Vigil

The Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Committee (UUSJC) will hold an Immigration Vigil to bear witness to the injustice that is happening in ICE detention facilities on Tuesday, July 16th at 6:00 pm, on the sidewalk in front of the Klamath Falls Government Center, 305 Main St. The UUSJC invites the community of Klamath Falls to join their voices calling for an end to family separation at the border, lack of sanitation in detention facilities, and human rights abuses by Customs & Border Patrol and the ICE agency. As a community with the Tulelake Internment Camp so near to us in location and in history, we must speak out against the incarceration of asylum seekers, and say “Never Again!”. A moment of reflection to honor those who have died in ICE custody as well as songs of unity will be shared.
Speakers will talk about resources and actions that we, as a community, can take to support our migrant siblings seeking asylum.
