For those who wish to attend, Stations of the Cross Devotion will occur on Fridays at 6pm in the Marien Kirche with plenty of opportunity to attend the meal following the devotion.  This is the 4th year for this event and the support and attendance has been outstanding from the community over the past 2 years.   Meals to go will be available, but there is no drive thru as they hope that people will wish to stay, meet new people, visit with old friends, and socialize during the event.

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, 18 miles north on RR 965, has been designated by the International Dark Sky Association as a Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park. Efforts by staff and volunteers have helped earn this special status by changing out lighting for more efficient options, shielding lights and putting on programs that showcase the importance of night sky protection and preservation of our astronomical view shed.

This will be a full day event that begins as the darkness turns to morning light with a sunrise program and ending with a Star Party chock full of telescopes and a constellation tour by McDonald Observatory’s own Bill Wren. Throughout the day, there will be activities for children and the young at heart. Bat programs, Astral Photography programs, “Better Lights for Starry Nights”, sunset yoga, solar viewing, glow-in-the-dark face painting, night hikes with park rangers and more.
