Come one! Come All! The Earth is quickening as the light grows in strength each day. The Crone shifts her face and becomes the Maiden. Seeds await the warmth that will swell and transform them to buds. Ewes are swollen with lambs. We celebrate the turning of the wheel by preparing our Selves and our Tools for the year ahead.

At Yule, The Coven of Misfit Toys invited participants to examine and call forth those things desired for fruition in the Light Time. As the wheel turns even more to Light and Life we now invite you to bring your working tools to be blessed. Tools of altar and magick. Tools of desk and office. Tools of garden and field. Tools of hearth and home. Tools needed to bring your dreams and goals to life.

We honor the Goddess Brighid and The Good God Dagda in this family friendly rite.

Please bring a seasonally appropriate feast item to share after the conclusion of our ritual.

Blessing of the Season,

EmrysAnu
Priestess - Coven of Misfit Toys

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.

Upcoming Sabbats and Deadlines
Preliminary schedule, please check back to confirm

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 tentatively scheduled for:
Sunday, March 8, 2015, Noon to 3:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Roseville Public Library (check for which room)
2180 North Hamline Ave
Roseville, Minnesota 55113

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.
