The members enjoyed a lovely Lughnasadh, praising the Celtic sun god Lugh on Saturday, August 5, 2017. The gathering was held at the temple, with dimming light in the west and the altar of life set in the center. A beautiful sunset graced the meditations, and a journey was led to meet the Celitc God, who gave warm, brotherly advice to those present. The feastings included chicken, mashed potatoes, and baked asparagus.

Well This is was our first official activity. Kassie Cressall from Logan even joined us, bringing the whiskey! She is in the process of starting a pagan student group at Utah State University in Logan and is getting some tips on how to do things. With 7 people joining us today, we are off to good numbers after getting started only 6 months ago! We went over to the Secretaries house on Saturday, April 1, 2010 for a beautiful Ostara ritual led by Daniel Cureton giving honor to the Goddess Ostara herself for whose day it was! We divined our future with boiled Easter eggs, had a wonderful chicken salad and cake and topped it off with throwing wild flowers on the barren parts of the land!

Afterward was a full moon ritual. Everyone who came brought an item to be cleansed and recharged. Everyone left feeling recharged and renewed after pulling down the energy of the Full moon.

We hope to have many more such activities so everyone can get to see what pagans do!

See you all then

Daniel C
