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 will be holding a Zoom ritual at 3 pm on Monday, August 1st celebrating Lughnasad. We hope to hold several in person Lughnasad rituals at our sacred oak tree within several days of August 1st. One has been already held on July 30th. Another will be held at 3 pm on Sunday, August 7th. Anyone interested in being there for an additional ritual is invited to let us know what timing works for you. Also, don’t hesitate to let us know what timing and location best works for you coming to in person druid conversations.
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 largely online, usually at our Red Maple Grove Facebook group. We have begun holding both online and in person rituals and informal druid conversations. As mentioned above, the next in person ritual will be on August 7th at 3 pm. .
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.
