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 Druidic organization, we are committed to presenting Indo-European classical spiritual practices within a 21st Century framework.
In addition to our public rituals on each of the high days, 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. Our grove’s focus is Celtic and Norse.
Our bylaws are here.
We have a yahoo group; however, our greatest e-activity is our Facebook group. Don’t hesitate to check us out there — same name Red Maple Grove. You may also get in touch by e-mail at [email protected].
