Join with us in honouring An Cailleach at the turning of the wheel from Winter to Spring!

An Cailleach is a primal creatrix, the Goddess of Winter, and She resides above our city in the Oak Ridges Moraine. We have lived with Her all winter, and now we bring Her gifts in recognition of Her awesome power, and invite Her to once again reside in the stone cairn we keep as Her summer residence.

Once An Cailleach is given her due, we turn our attention to the awakening Earth. All who come are invited to bring Spring Baskets filled with foods, seeds for your garden, and other items important to you. These baskets will be blessed in ritual.

Please bring indoor shoes or slippers to wear in the hall. Because of our indoor location, please try to find alternate offerings to incense. No sandalwood incense, please (allergies).
