Lantern Walk – Gratitude

Each November we gather together for our annual Lantern Walk to celebrate Martinmas, a festival of inner light in the outer darkness. Celebrating Martinmas serves as a reminder that each of us has a divine spark that we must carry out into the world and share with others. The children hear the story of St. Martin, sing songs and, as darkness falls, venture out into the night with their lanterns, walking along a path lit with glowing luminaries, carefully carrying their lanterns in a mood of quiet reverence. This symbolic act brings home the deeper truth, in the words of Siddhartha Gautama (563-483 B.C.).

There isn’t enough darkness in all the world to snuff out the light of one little candle.

The Festival Committee would like to express their immense gratitude to the entire community. We appreciate the participants and volunteers that made our Martinmas celebration so lovely. The event was a beautiful success! Thank you to the teachers, staff, students, parents and community members who helped make this event so magical; and to all those dedicated individuals who volunteered for the event. Thank you all for bringing your love, light, and song into the world this evening.

*Please know we appreciate your understanding and patience with the restroom situation and have been working on solutions for next year.
