Mabon, the Autumnal Equinox is upon us. This Sabbat celebrates the main harvest of fruits, vegetables and grains that we all depend upon for our sustenance. Come and thank the Goddess and God whose union brings about the fertility which culminates in the annual harvest. This ritual will not include a group shared Great Rite, as we are thanking the Gods for their efforts, so they will get the first fruits of the harvest during the ritual. We will burn boons of thankfulness, so think about what the Goddess and God have brought into your life, and what you have to be thankful for.
Estelle, the May Queen and her Tarot group are hosting this Sabbat, and Bob, the Green Man will also be participating.
Additionally, this ritual is open, and members of Living Table Church, the group who graciously allows us space for our rituals, may attend. Church members, students and guests are welcome.
Gather at 6:30, ritual at 7PM on Saturday September 20th, at Living Table Church, at 40th St. East and 38th Ave South, in south Minneapolis. Wear festive garb, and bring a dish to share for the potluck feast afterward. See you there!
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, 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:
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.
