Vernal Equinox Service

  • March 19, 2016
  • 6:00 PM
  • St. Brigit Episcopal Church, 110 Johnson Street, Frederick, CO

St. Brigit invites you to indulge in a time of spiritual sanctuary and renewal as we celebrate the return of Spring.

Our Vernal Equinox Service is scheduled for Saturday, March 19, at 6:00p.m., and will focus on the theme of hope for newness of life.

This will be the fourtheenth service in St. Brigit’s A’it Caol series.  A’it Caol (pronounced atch qweel) is Gaelic for “A Thin Place.”  These services are created to offer guests an experience of God through a unique liturgy, which combines ancient tradition with contemporary language.  They include specially designed meditation areas, reflecting the Scriptural lessons, and sacred music with an ethereal sound.

Ancient people marked this day with thanksgiving for the return of light and warmth.  Spring promised rebirth and hope.  In the Christian church, the Vernal Equinox is significant in that it is used in determining the date of Easter, the first Sunday following the first full moon after the Equinox.
