25th Annual Winter Solstice Celebration led by Elizabeth Torrey

November 29, 2021 Submitted by Elizabeth Torrey

The public is cordially invited to honor the 25th Winter Solstice Celebration with poetry and song on Tuesday, Dec. 21 at 7 PM. This event will take place virtually on Zoom. Bring a favorite winter poem to share if you like, or simply join us online from home, and listen. Ken Read Brown will introduce the evening hosted by Elizabeth Torrey from inside the meetinghouse in keeping with the traditional setting. Candles and quiet will be in view! A musical prelude will take place before the poems are read. The Instrumental performance will be provided by Christopher Nickelson-Mann, and vocals will be performed by Heather Nolasco and Rich Jensen. In the northern hemisphere, Dec. 21st is the official date of the 2021 Winter Solstice (at 10:59 AM, EST), the shortest day of the year and one of the oldest known holidays in human history. After this long night, the hours of light lengthen with the promise of spring. This program is being presented in coordination with Old Ship Church.

The Zoom link will be posted on the Old Ship Church website at oldshipchurch.org beginning on Dec. 15. For more information, please call Elizabeth Torrey at 781-749-0543. This is a free event and all are welcome.
