Druid Announcements and News

Below are the announcements and important news for members and friends of our Grove and Druidry in general.

Holiday Ritual

Nighttime ritual

Join us at our next ritual. This Rite will celebrate the season and honor the kindred, followed by fellowship and a potluck. Here are the next few services:

  • Litha, Sun Jun 21, 6PM at Crown Point Beach
  • Lughnasadh, TBD 6PM at Crown Point Beach
  • Mabon, TBD 6PM at Crown Point Beach

We invite those interested in a Druid path to join us, the Coast Oak Grove ADF, located in central San Diego. Coast Oak Grove was founded to explore the path of nature based, earth-centered Indo-European Druidry. It is open to followers of Druidism, Modern Druidry and those interested in learning more about the Druid path.

This group is associated with Ár nDraíocht Féin (Our Own Druidry) and is open to other Druid paths. Our grove is open to those whose pantheons are from Indo European cultures including Celtic, Germanic, Baltic, Vedic, Hellenic, Roman, etc. Druidism is a spiritual lifestyle that applies the nine virtues (wisdom, piety, vision, courage, integrity, perseverance, hospitality, moderation, and fertility) to our daily lives. We hope that you will find here a community to encourage you and help you learn about Neo-Pagan Druidry.

In addition to a place for Druids to fellowship and grow in our faith, we support the San Diego Pagan community and the wonderful groups that exist to provide opportunities for Neo-Pagans to associate and learn. For more information about our rituals, please visit High Holy Days.

Visit ADF's article on ritual for more information.

News from the Mother Grove

ADF membership is rising to $25 / year. It takes effect January 15, 2008. Please make a note of that before sending in your dues or renewals. If you pay by PayPal, please add a few extra dollars to cover the costs of using that service. As always, feel free to donate extra money to the Mother Grove.

Please also include your grove affiliation (i.e. Coast Oak Grove) when renewing. That way the Mother Grove knows what Grove you're attending. It helps us get more resources from ADF when we have lots of paid and affiliated members on file.
