Located in Ottawa, Ontario, Red Maple Grove has been offering open, public rituals to the Pagan community since Midsummer 1999. As a member grove of Ár nDraoícht Féin, North America’s largest Druid organization, we are committed to presenting Indo-European traditional spirituality within a 21st Century framework. Our grove’s focus is Celtic and Norse, though those of other hearth cultures are welcome. Red Maple Grove’s next in person ritual will be Bealtine, Tuesday, April 26th at 2 pm and also Sunday, May 1, 2022 at 2 pm at our sacred oak tree. Our online Bealtine Zoom or Zoom like ritual will be on Saturday, April 30th at 4 pm.
Due to the current pandemic situation, our rituals (especially those celebrating the eight standard Neopagan High Days) and other activities, including our informal Wednesday Conversations, have been online, usually at our RedMapleGrove FaceBook group. We are hoping maybe to have two sets of rituals this year, one at our sacred oak tree and one zoom or zoom like. Due to uncertain work schedules, the zoom ones cannot be known far in advance. The next in person one, as stated above, will be at 2 pm on Sunday May 1st. Following that, in person High Day rituals at our sacred tree will be: Monday, June 20th; Monday, August 1st; Thursday, September 22nd; Tuesday, November 1st, as well as c. 4 pm on Wednesday, December 21st. If there is a demand, as there well may be, we may hold additional rituals at the sacred tree on a weekend close to those days. Timing of our rituals will be provided and confirmed as we draw closer to the date.
We have done various outreach activities, have facilitated public discussion groups, and have run classes teaching the material included in the ADF Dedicant’s Program.
We continue studying the ADF dedicants program. Our study class is also on Facebook. If you’re interested and ADF resonates with you, come and give it a try.
Our bylaws are here.
