The Islamic new year is considered very important for Javanese people, and even the Islamic new year eve, known as Malam Satu Suro, is claimed as a very sacred time. In various areas, Javanese people conduct rituals to welcome this event, such as the one conducted in Sendang Si Dhukun in Parakan subdistrict of Central Java. This paper aims to explain the communication patterns of Sendhang Si Dhukun ritual on Malam Satu Suro ceremony. This research used a descriptive qualitative method. The data used in this research are collected from informants involved in the rituals. The result shows that the ritual cannot be separated from Islamic teaching as it contains a lot of Islamic prayers. In addition, the mixture of Islamic teaching and Javanese culture can be clearly seen in the ritual. The use of Javanese high level (krama) variety and Javanese poetry (kidung) also dominates the communication patterns in the ritual. This indicates that Javanese people adhere to a belief that religion and culture cannot be separated as they can preserve harmonious relation between their ideology and social environment.
Key words: communication patterns / Sendhang Si Dhukun / Javanese culture
