Michaelmas

In Celtic tradition, St. Michael represents the unconquered hero, fighting against evil and the powers of darkness. The experience of nature during autumn, that of a "passing away" illuminated by brilliant color, heralds Michaelmas time. Celebrating Michaelmas, we strive to stimulate our will to fight for the good so that the children realize not even the smallest good deed is ever lost, whether it is noticed or not.

Parents and friends are invited (and encouraged to dress as farmers and rustic folks) to come to the meadow in front of Hooper Hall on Thursday, October 6th, at 11:15am, to enjoy a festive parade and celebrations in honor of St. Michael. The pageant will be followed by a school potluck. Faculty and high school students will join the lower school for games and activities that afternoon.
