An invitation to gather together for Hellenion's February libation to Aphrodite. "On the second Saturday of each month members of Hellenion pour a libation to one of the Olympians on the same day, from wherever they may be, with whomever may join them, around the world. In this way, whatever else we do to celebrate Hellenic occasions, we are united in doing the same action on the same day. In February, we honor Aphrodite."
Aphrodite Charidotes ("Giver of Joy") is the beloved patron goddess of our home temple, so this libation is a special one for us! I will prepare the altar with her statue, flowers, incense, small offerings, a libation and a libation bowl; feel free to bring an offering or a symbol of Aphrodite to decorate the altar if you like.
Stay after the libation to share some dessert and conversation; bring a snack to share if you like!
