**** COVID-19 OPERATIONAL CHANGES ****

Our in-person services are temporarily suspended for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will resume in-person services once our parent organization (the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia) resumes services.

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.

Trevor Project: Collections at the Litha High Rite (6/21/2019)

Doctors Without Borders: Collections at the Labyrinth Ritual (9/20/2019)
