Series: Women's Christmas: An Epiphany Celebration for Wise Women
This event is now full. If you would like to be put on a waiting list, please call 608-791-5295.
Women’s Christmas is rooted in delightful Irish tradition. On the Feast of Epiphany, Irish women left the care of their households to the men for a few hours so they could enjoy each other’s company away from their domestic responsibilities, especially after the busyness of Christmas preparations. Epiphany is also the day we celebrate the coming of the Wise Men to the infant Jesus. At the FSC, we are celebrating the tradition of Women’s Christmas and the Feast of the Epiphany with our own special event, Women’s Christmas: An Epiphany Celebration for Wise Women.
Whether you are Irish or not, you are invited to leave behind your responsibilities for a few hours to enjoy the companionship of other women. Beginning with a simple meal, we will reflect on and receive the gifts of three Irish saints: St. Gobnait and her healing honey, St. Ita and her three stones for dreams and vision, and St. Brigid and her fire of protection for the coming year.
Start a new tradition with us. All will leave blessed and gifted!
