From the very first year, S.T.A.R. has been an all-embracing community offering an invitation of spiritual hospitality via Creation Spirituality. As an all-inclusive collection of folks, everyone is welcomed and encouraged to share their creative and spiritual energy. 

Our creation-centered Friends are artists, dancers, musicians,  writers, storytellers, poets, earth-caregivers, theologians and celebrators of creation. All help in designing and are participants in our services.

Nudging us towards a greater sensitivity, awareness, and enjoyment of being present in the moment, in a sacred space, with others who pursue God by whatever name we choose to recognize and designate the holy and divine spark in our souls.

We welcome new names and faces to our Circle, in addition to welcoming back old friends.

Whoever you are… Whatever you are… Wherever you are on your journey…
We bid You Welcome!

Come See Who We Are

2018 Dia de los Muertos - The Day of the Dead Celebration

Día de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and helping support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awake and celebrate with them.
