Red Maple Grove without fail holds open rituals marking the eight standard Neo-Pagan holy days, equinoxes and solstices plus the four Celtic mid points (Samhain, Imbolc, Bealtaine and Lughnasad) While for a very long time, since our beginning in 1999, these were at our grove’s sacred tree (in Irish, bile), current circumstances have these happening online. Red Maple Grove has a Norse/Celtic focus. So, our Cross-quarter high days are Norse, while our traditional Celtic mid points are Celtic.
As an ADF grove, we endeavour to 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. Our most recent one was held online at Midsummer 2021. Lughnasad 2021 will be held on Sunday, August 1st at 7 pm, also online. There is an event page for it at Facebook’s Red Maple Grove group. Some previous ones, 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!
