Each year at Beltane, the Wiccan Church of Minnesota extends our tradition of selection of the Representatives of The Goddess and The God to oversee the spiritual health of our community for the next cycle of the seasons. The selection is made by The Gods via a lottery of eligible candidates. To the best of our research, this is the longest-running Beltane Lottery in the U.S. (and perhaps elsewhere).
What? You were a member back in 1978 but haven't been dues-paid in a while? No problem. You do not have to pay back dues. Just pay this year's current dues and KAPOW!!! You're all good again!
Potluck community feast to follow, so please bring a dish to share if you are able.
The ritual is on Saturday May 3. Gather at 6:30, ritual at 7.
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.
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 and Secretary. 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 scheduled for:
Subsequent Moots: To Be Announced.
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.
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.
