Volunteer for Yule (and others) still NEEDED

Published by:

So far no one has stepped up to lead a TAWN ritual for Yule this year! Come on people. There are many of you, not just groups but competent individuals, in our community who could do rituals for the solitaries and seekers who would like to share energy for our holy days. Raven’s Nest has agreed to host Imbolc, but Yule (coming soon!) and  the rest of 2019 are still awaiting leaders. Reminder: whoever agrees to do this can name time and place that works for them. Please think about it, talk to others you know, and contact me (carol@garden-realty.com) if you can promise to do one. No need to say you’re thinking about it. Only firm commitments count. Thanks.

Public Samhain Ritual Friday November 2nd

Published by:

Please join Carol Garr to celebrate Samhain, our honoring of the dead as well as our new year. At the last harvest the Sun God waits in the womb of rebirth, yet the wheel of the year ever turns. Please gather at Ft Lowell Park Ramada 7 (at the far eastern end of the park, in the wash down in the riparian area) at 6PM, with ritual to begin at 6:30. We will have an altar where mementos of your beloved dead can be placed, as well as a cauldron where small items can be burned as part of the rite. Come join in the spiral dance. A potluck feast will follow.

Carol Garr to lead Samhain ritual 11/2/18

Published by:

I, your ritual coordinator, have decided to volunteer for this year’s Samhain ritual on Friday evening, November 2nd. Time & place not yet set, but I’ll advise when it’s been determined. It will be a Wiccan rite.

We’re still looking for a volunteer for Yule, or after that. Covens, groups, or individuals of any Pagan or Heathen tradition are encouraged to step up to share with our community.

Ritual volunteers needed!

Published by:

Though I have had many people say they’d think about volunteering I have no firm commitments, other than SAZCUUPS for Mabon,  for our open rituals for the rest of the year. PLEASE put out the word and let’s get our community to step up to offer to lead some of the rites. Dates, times, and locations can be set by the officiants. All Pagan paths welcome, and we’d love to see some variety. Litha/Summer Solstice is coming soon! Blessings.

Beltane celebration

Published by:

Thanks to Hearths Gate Coven for a wonderful Beltane rite and Maypole dance on May 5th. A good time was had by all, even though the weather was HOT. The weave on the pole was excellent, so may the magic cast there be as smooth and beautiful

Public Beltane celebration and Maypole on May 5th

Published by:

Once again the Wiccan Hearths Gate Coven has volunteered to lead our Beltane rite, complete with a Maypole to celebrate the  fertility of Spring. Please arrive at 2PM for a ritual starting PROMPTLY at  3. Due to prep time required anyone not present by 2:30 will not be able to  dance the Pole. It will be held in Himmel Park (on 1st St between Tucson Blvd & Country Club), between the tennis courts and Hippie Hill.

It  may be hot, so be sure to remember your water and sunscreen. And, if you’re  dancing, appropriate shoes. If you’ve never done this before it is loads of  fun! Hope you can join us!

FYI, due to time of day and expected temperatures the coven is not having a potluck afterwards, so find a way to celebrate with your friends.

Mother Earth Ministries needs volunteer!

Published by:

Mother Earth Ministries, our local Pagan prison ministry, needs a new corresponding priest/ess to respond to inmate inquiries. Our current writing priestess must resign due to health issues, and our inmates count on being able to get answers to their religious questions. We are not pen pals. Good familiarity with Paganism needed, though there is time to research answers if required. Ashleen and I are always available to assist, too.

We have many informational brochures to send to answer general questions, and a form letter that can quickly be customized if that is all that is needed. Please contact Carol Garr (carol@garden-realty.com) or Ashleen O’Gaea (o.gaea4mem@comcast.net) for questions or to volunteer to help. You may also check out our web site http://MotherEarthMinistries.org to see more about us and view some of the literature available.
