Interfaith Winter Solstice Service in Croton Falls

December 17, at 6 p.m.




Kristin Hoffman

The Chapel at Croton Falls will host its annual winter solstice service, an interfaith celebration of the light, December 17, at 6 p.m. The service is open to the public, with a suggested donation of $15.

The chapel regularly hosts Interfaith Sundays, usually on the third Sunday morning of the month, but this annual ceremony “promises music, magic and mystery,” says Rev. Deborah Moldow, an interfaith minister at the chapel. “The solstice service is always held in the evening, so that the darkened church can be filled with the light from our candles and the glorious Christmas tree donated each year by the Outhouse family.”

This year’s special guests will include singer Kristin Hoffman; Bear Walker, a holistic healer and Native American medicine man; and Westchester Spirited Drumming, a local group open to all. People of all ages are invited to bring a drum or rattle to help call in the light. Along with Moldow, members of the chapel’s interfaith team adding to the “magic” will be Pastor Dr. Hans B. Hallundbaek and Rev. Melanie Gambino.

The event is sponsored by the Garden of Light, a nonprofit platform for emerging spirituality that arose out of the interfaith services at the chapel. To learn more about that organization, visit GardenOfLight.org.
