Crab Feed Changing with the Times!
St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church thanks you for your enthusiastic participation in our Annual All-You-Can-Eat-Crab and Shrimp Feed over the past 27 years.
Due to rising prices, uncertainty about crab harvest and unreliable weather, we have come to understand that it is no longer viable for us to continue this event.
We do hope that your support for St. Aidan’s will continue on August 26, 2018, when we begin our first end-of-summer Celtic Festival, complete with homemade pies to sample and purchase, and more. We will send you more information about the festival in the Spring.
Again, thank you for being a part of our long-standing crab feed, and thank you, in advance, for supporting our new fund-raising effort.
The people of St. Aidan’s
February 2, 2018 – Friday @ 6:00-7:00 p.m. Music and Meditation: Imbolc. An hour of contemplative Music and Meditation: Imbolc – half way between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox – has been traditionally associated with the onset of lactation of ewes, soon to give birth to the spring lambs. The Christian Church of course sought to introduce an alternative festival and so the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple celebrates an early episode in the life of Jesus, and falls on or around February 2nd. A time of fun and fellowship will follow the Music and Meditation and will be a from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
