Saint Martin's Day - Lantern Walk
Saint Martin's Day
Every child in Germany knows the story of Saint Martin of Tours, the saint who cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar to save him from dying from the cold. The holiday originated in France and then spread to the Low Countries, the British Isles, Germany, Scandinavia, and Eastern Europe. Nowadays, the holiday goes along with various traditions such as the custom of making lanterns or dining goose.
St. Mark’s Lutheran Church invites you to a lantern procession on the occasion of Saint Martin’s Day followed by a potluck dinner.
Date: November 11 at 5 pm
