We are starting to get some volunteers for some of our public rituals, but many are still open. So far, only Ostara and Mabon are spoken for. I would especially appreciate seeing some other traditions besides eclectic Wicca, as we have several of those scheduled. Remember, the officiant can set the date, time, and place to fit their schedule. I’ve heard several “maybes” but before I fill a slot I need a firm commitment. Will any of you step up?
Julie & Carrie of AZCUUPS have volunteered to lead the ritual for Mabon, at 6PM, after Fall Fest on Sept 22nd. As we will already be there at the church (4831 E. 22nd St) the logistics will be easy, and they are hoping to be able to get us some kind of discount as well. This will be a joint celebration with their congregation, so it may have extra-good attendance. That will a great opportunity to expose their people to TAWN as well. It will be an eclectic Wiccan ritual. I have met with them, and they seem to be delightful ladies, with experience leading public rites. I’m looking forward to it.
Greetings all. I have agreed to lead a Spring Equinox/Ostara ritual jointly for Southern AZ Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (sazcuups) and TAWN. This will be a Wiccan rite, with a snack potluck to follow. They usually conclude by 8PM, so not too late for those of you who work in the morning. It will be held at 6PM on TUESDAY 3/20 (the actual Equinox) at the Unitarian church at 4831 E. 22nd St. This is the same location we have had Fall Fest for some years now. In keeping with my usual practice we will be outside unless the weather doesn’t allow otherwise. Hope to see you there.
Volunteers still needed to lead TAWN open rituals! Patrick & Morgana have graciously offered to lead our Imbolc/Candlemas Circle, but many others are still available, including one for Spring Fest. Any Nature-based tradition welcome. I ask only for knowledge of your faith, and confidence and competence in leading a rite for the public. You pick the date, time, and location. Please contact your ritual coordinator, Carol Garr, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-883-4444.
The Yule Ritual was well attended with some 30 folks, plus 4 celebrants in attendance. (Total 35).
The ritual celebrations of the solstice and season, along with a feast, ran for about 3 hours around the Yule Fires, with a splendid potluck of hot roasts, stews, pies and other delicious warmness. Wassail and other warm goodies were to hand and a truly festive occasion was had.
TAWN appreciates your efforts to offer a meaningful celebration for our members and guests.
Wiccan HP Patrick Campion and HPs Morgan Canady will be hosting an open Imbolc ritual at noon on Saturday Feb 3rd, in Himmel Park near Hippie Hill (1st St east of Tucson Blvd) . A potluck will follow. Hope you can join us!
