This is a kid-friendly public ritual.

The days are getting longer and it is time for the Wheel to turn again. Join us in celebrating Lady Day. Come visit the aspects of Mother, Maiden, Warrior and Crone. See how the Goddesses in our lives have strengthened and empowered us through life lessons. Find the strength to forge a stronger hearth. Feel the empowerment your roots can give you.

Please reflect on the Goddesses in your life prior to and during the ritual.

Please bring a small candle with you that you will be comfortable carrying for a portion of the ritual. We will have flame-guards/drip catchers available for those who bring candle sticks with them.

Potluck feast to follow. Questions - ritualist@WiccanChurchMN.org

Please join us.

Access to Ritual (Dates Through The Wheel)

Many Wiccans choose to practice their spirituality as solitary practitioners, others seek a group ritual experience. Not all who desire group ritual experience are members of a coven or other group to fulfill that need. WiCoM tries to meet the needs of these members by sponsoring group celebrations of the eight sabbats.

Church-recognized Elders and Teachers have voting rights at their respective moots. Moots are scheduled consecutively: General, Teachers, Elders, and Executive.

Self Governance

WiCoM is governed by an Executive Board made up of an Elders' Representative, a Teachers' Representative and a General Representative, who are advised by our May Queen, Green Man and Fool, and assisted by the Treasurer, Secretary and Webcrafter. The operations of the Church are overseen by four Trustees, and the books are periodically independently audited. We are required by our bylaws to convene a minimum of four meetings, or "moots," each year to formally conduct the Church's business. All moots are open to the public and public participation is welcome. Dues-paid members of at least Voting Membership level may vote at the General Moot. Church-recognized Elders and Teachers have voting rights at their respective moots. Moots are scheduled consecutively: General, Teachers, Elders, and Executive.

The next round of moots is currently scheduled for:
Sunday, March 6, 2016, Noon to as late as 3:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Ramsey County Library, 2180 Hamline Ave N, Roseville, MN 55113.

Subsequent Moots: To Be Announced.

Public Awareness

In the past WiCoM has co-sponsored various informational meetings with different groups for the purpose of community education and hospitality. Examples of such groups include the Minneapolis and St. Paul police departments (community education) and sponsoring a suite at the Minicon science fiction convention (hospitality). At these and other events, WiCoM is dedicated to the portrayal of Wicca as a life-affirming spiritual path.

Community

Many members of WiCoM are also members of other Wiccan and pagan organizations, both locally and nationally. Our newsletter, "The WitchTower", has been sent as a part of an information exchange to organizations in Minneapolis and to Winnipeg, Manitoba.
