2021 Turning Circle Calendar

Sanctuaries A, B, and C are on the upper level of the Owen Brown Interfaith Center. Room 150 and 116 are on the lower level. Unless otherwise stated, we gather at 7:30PM and the rituals start at 7:45PM. Depending on who is leading the service, and what kind of ritual is being held, services generally conclude between 9:00PM and 9:30PM.


Our in-person services were suspended for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although Governor Hogan rescinded the State of Emergency, effective 7/1/2021), our parent organization (the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia) has not yet resumed services. Gor questions about re-opening, please email the UUCC for more information. In the meantime, we are hosting online services via teleconference (Zoom). If you would like to receive an invitation to an upcoming teleconferenced ritual, please send us an email through the "Contact Us" applet.

Ritual Time/Place/Etiquette

Unless otherwise stated, we meet at 7:30PM at the Owen Brown Interfaith Center in Columba, MD. Rituals start at 7:45PM.

We don't have an official dress code. Some people wear cloaks or robes while some just wear regular casual attire.

There is also no charge to attend our rituals. However, we do collect donations for buying ritual supplies and we also support four secular charities each year.

We do ask that you not take photographs during rituals (before and after is fine).

You don't need to be a member to attend services. But if you'd like to become a member, just ask one of the friendly, approachable Coordinators!

About Our Charity Selections

Each year we select charities that fit into one of four categories: local, helps humans, helps animals, helps the environment.

We also give a yearly donation to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia in thanks for granting us space in which to hold our rituals.

Due to us meeting online for the past year, we have not been taking collections of any kind. However, we will resume supporting charitable causes once we can meet in-person and take up collections.
