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.
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 tree and one zoom or zoom like. Due to uncertain work schedules, the zoom ones cannot be known far in advance. The next one will be on Tuesday, February 1st at 7 pm. The ones at the sacred tree tentatively will be at 3:30 pm on February 1st and 2 pm on the following days: Sunday, March 20th; Sunday, May 1st; 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 well 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 dates specified.
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.
