Last Friday, DMS celebrated Lantern Walk which is also called Martinmas. It honors, in a universal way, the story of St. Martin, friend of the children and patron of the poor, who was known for his gentleness and his ability to bring warmth and light to those in need.
As we journey into the darkest time of the year, it is increasingly important for each of us to kindle warmth and light in our hearts. Martin’s cloak can remind us to share with those in need. The gently glowing lanterns of Martinmas gives way to the candles of the spiral walk as we draw nearer to the Solstice, showing how our inner light must shine ever brighter.
In this time of giving, please save the date – Tuesday, November 27th as a day to give a charitable donation to Desert Marigold. The DMS Giving Tuesday Goal this year is to raise $5,000 for the Scholarship Fund. Thank you!
