Red Maple Grove, without fail, holds open rituals celebrating the eight standard Neo-Pagan High Holy Days: equinoxes, solstices, plus the four Celtic mid points, Samhain, Imbolc, Bealtaine and Lughnasad. Our rituals are open (public). If you’re interested, you’re welcome. Feel free to let us know which times and locations would best enable you to attend future rituals. Our next High Holy Day is Yule. We are hoping to hold a number of Yule events, including rituals, from December 14th to December 28th. We are hoping to hold an in person ritual in Gatineau. Red Maple Grove has a Norse/Celtic focus. So, usually our Cross-quarter high days are Norse, while our traditional Celtic mid points are Celtic. We have also held rituals in other cultural styles.
As an ADF grove, we present ADF rituals, the more recent ones following ADF’s current Core Order of Ritual. We have been holding formal rituals since Midsummer 1999. We held an informal one on Bealtaine 1999. A formal ADF ritual was conducted in Ottawa at the Spring Equinox in 1999 by Montreal’s Silver Fox Grove. Some of our previous rituals, going back several years, may be seen by clicking at the appropriate ritual link below. At each ritual we take an omen, as per standard ADF practice. Some omens may be seen by clicking at the appropriate omen link.
Thrice Three Blessings!
