Ancestor Feast

AncestorFeastPhoto-Web

At one point or another we all may have been lucky enough to have felt the love and support of our ancestors – a grandparent, uncle, aunt, cousin, or others who had come before us. Although they may not be present in our daily lives today, we can remember them and recreate that feeling of sweetness and support. In doing so, we open ourselves to feeling more connected with life.

Welcome to VWP’s Ancestor Feast

 

A free Community Celebration 

 

where we honor our ancestors and create connections with each other.
