Lugh, from whom Lughnasadh receives its name, is a Celtic deity (specifically Irish) associated with the Sun. While Midsummer was the peak of his power, now we note that the end of his reign is in sight, and we honor his skills and contributions to our well-being. To balance his Solar energies, we will be calling on four Celtic lunar-related goddesses to honor Her four faces: Maiden, Warrior, Mother and Crone, noting that the guidance She gives throughout her phases are also a reflection of His luminous self.

We will be raising energy via Acoustic Instruments - as close to a "drum jam" as we can arrange. There are no rules here folks. Let's make some noise! The energy we raise will be directed toward tokens which you will be able to take home.

Bring : Drums, rattles, flutes, whatever you have to make noise for raising energy.

Potluck community feast to follow, so bring a dish to share if you are able. Since this is the celebration of Lugh, the Celtic Sun God and God of many skills and talents, bringing some foods or dishes that you are skilled at making, or something from the first harvest might be in order.

Gather at 6:30; Ritual at 7:00
This ritual is open to the Public and Family Friendly.

This WiCoM ritual is presented by Augustvine, ShylaRaven, FelinaSeline, and Suki

Blessings!

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.

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 scheduled for:
Sunday, September 7, 2014, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Pending Confirmation)
LOCATION: Black Bear Crossings at the Lake

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.
