Join us for a Beltane ritual, plus fun, games, community and many other activities!

Our 2023 UUS:E Mayfair is conceived as a spiritually grounded, community-building event. The centerpiece is a Celtic-inspired, seasonal Beltane ritual in the memorial garden, organized by the UUS:E Pagans.

Beltaine Ritual – 11:00 AM to Noon in the UUS:E Memorial Garden. Bring two “clooties” (prayer ribbons) to tie on the May Trees in the Memorial Garden. What are clooties?
