Families and friends are welcome to join us in a celebration and blessing of the Chagrin River Water. Please be a part of sharing your energy in blessing our local Chagrin River, whose tributaries run through numerous communities in northern Ohio until it reaches Lake Erie. We encourage you to bring your own natural object that can be gently placed in the river, such as a sample of water, small stone, flower, etc. that may have a special meaning to you to contribute to the water blessing. This event is open to individuals of all backgrounds and religions who would like a devoted time to personally reflect and socialize with others.
