Grand Festivals

The Congregation of the Ascended's four primary festivals mark the beginning of each season and are glad times where families gather to feast and celebrate. The Hazatien Calendar kicks off with Eterri, a Fertility festival in the Spring; followed by Essocilla, the Summer Pilgrimage; then Inoryi, an autumnal Harvest festival; and finally Mindal, a time in Winter for remembering the dearly departed.  

Eterri (Spring / Fertility)

  Blessed be the season of Eterri, the time of growth and renewal.
May the fields be fruitful, and the spirits of our forefathers guide us on our path.
May we flourish like the flowers of spring, blossoming with grace and beauty.

May our loved ones who have passed find peace, and may we honor their memories in all we do.
