Mabon Ritual will be an act of thanksgiving and sacrifice. We will thank the Gods for our abundant harvest and share with them as they share with us. We will honor the Lord and Lady of the harvest and mark the Green God's sacrifice where He becomes the the Hunter of Souls and the Sun at Midnight.

As it is a harvest celebration, no circle will be cast but offerings will be made. After The Offeringd have been made and the God's Sacrifice appropriately acknowledged, we will share our harvest and community in the feast.

Attendees who drum should bring their instruments.
All should bring items for the potluck that you deem a fair offering to the Gods. Attendees may also bring other food .drink if they wish to make additional offerings. 

Preparation would include serious reflection on the gifts of the growing months that have been given to you and that you enter in a spirit of Thanksgiving

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, December 6, 2015, Noon to as late as 3:00 p.m.
LOCATION: To Be Determined.

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.


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.
