Welcome to the web site of Red Maple Grove, a community of ADF druids dwelling in the area of Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec. 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 to those living in the 21st Century. Our two specific hearth cultures are Celtic and Norse, though those of other hearth cultures are very welcome. We are planning to hold at least two in person rituals for Imbolc 2023 at our Sacred Oak Tree. One will be held on Wednesday, February 1st at 3 pm. Another will be held on Sunday, February 5th at 3 pm. There will also be a Zoom ritual for Imbolc 2023 on Thursday Feb 4th at 1 pm. Our Facebook Red Maple Grove group has an events section providing directions to our Sacred Oak Tree.
We have also been holding in person informal druid conversations. We invite people interested to let us know when and where best works for them. Touch wood, details for the next one will soon be posted here.
We have done various activities to benefit the wider community, have conducted public discussions on druid and pagan themes, and have run classes teaching the ADF Dedicant’s Program (introductory druid study).
We have four Facebook pages: our main Red Maple Grove one, one specifically for our members, one for text conversations and one for health and healing. If you’re interested, you are very welcome to come and check us out.
Our bylaws are here.
