Fellowship of the
Lord and Lady

Kingston, Ontario, Canada

A Wiccan Community

Welcome

Lisa and Greg are spiritual partners who co-lead the Fellowship of the Lord and Lady. It is very traditional for Wiccan groups to be lead by both a woman and man who act as High Priestess and High Priest in ritual and who represent the Lady and the Lord.

They organize the events of the Fellowship, teach classes on Wicca, host community ritual at the Sabbats, and work to educate the community about our traditions. In addition, they provide a variety of religious services to support the spiritual needs of Wiccans in the community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to foster a positive, healthy and fruitful Wiccan community in our home city, Kingston, Ontario. Our Private Online Community offers a safe place where curious folk can learn more about Wicca and discuss their experiences without risk of social stigma. Wiccan Moot goes one step further. It is an open and public meeting where you can come to meet other Wiccans and to learn about our traditions.

Our Ethical Standards

We abide by the Wiccan Rede, in love and trust.

Live and let live.
We are neither dogmatic nor paternalistic. What we teach is a tradition, it is not the only valid way of living. We will not tell you how to live your life.

Soft of eye, light of touch, speak ye little, listen much.
We are non–judgmental. We are compassionate and accepting of the disposition of others.

When ye have and hold a need, harken not to others greed.
We are not for profit. We do not make money through any of our activities. We will only seek to break even so that we can continue to serve the community's needs.

With a fool no season spend, nor be counted as his friend.
We will not tolerate behaviour in others which is counter to the standards being laid out here. If someone cannot comport themself with dignity and respect the rights of others he or she may be asked to no longer participate.

 

The following statements are of traditional Wiccan laws.

No one may tell any not of the Craft who be of the Wica.
Your privacy is very important to us. We will not reveal your religious and spiritual leanings to anyone without your express permission. We expect you to follow this law as well.

No one may do or say anything which will endanger any of the Craft, or bring them in contact with the law of the land.
You will never be asked or pressured to break the law of the land.

No one, however great an injury or injustace they recieve, may use the Art in any to do ill or harm any.
We are a good people. We do not seek retribution or vengeance against those who have wronged us. For we know that karma and the justice of the Gods will be brought against them in the due course of time.

What Services We Provide

We are available to provide the following religious and spiritual services, in either a private or community context.

Wiccanings.
A Wiccaning is a celebration of the new birth of a child. A ceremony that welcomes the child into the world and into their community. This ceremony does not make a child Wiccan. Each person must walk their own path when they are old enough to make their own decisions. It is traditional for a community to come together in joy and to give thanks to the Lord and Lady for a new child and to help provide the new parents with the support they need in this most wonderful new adventure.

Handfastings.
A handfasting is the spiritual and religious ceremony in which two Wiccans are joined together in marriage. It is a formal but joyous event where the two people take commitment vows before the High Priestess and the High Priest, before the God and Goddess and before the members of their community that they will love and support each other as friends, lovers, companions and soulmates, reflecting the eternal relationship of the Lord and Lady.

A handfasting is a religious ceremony, by itself it is not recognized as a legal marriage by the Government. Additional paperwork, which we do not provide, would be required for a full legal marriage. We support same–sex marriage.

Requiems.
A requiem is the solemn ceremony during which we honour and celebrate the passing of a person from this life to the next. Depending upon the circumstances and the wishes of the family, this can be a time of mourning and great sadness, or a celebration and rememberance of the life of the deceased. We believe that death is an essential stage of life, and a reality of Nature that we all share. But, just the same, it is important for proper health and wellness that we have closure, and an opportunity to formally bid farewell to our lost loved ones, in the presense of our family, friends, spiritual community and the Gods.

Spiritual Guidance.
Wicca is a non–paternalistic religious tradition. What that means is that we do not tell people that they ought to be Wiccan, nor that they ought to live in a specific way. However, when a person feels him– or herself to be Wiccan, and they are looking for spiritual guidance and support to help them through something that is happening in their lives, we are here to listen and if necessary will make the effort to meet with you privately.

However, we are not registered social workers, nor are we trained or suited to issue clinical advice. In the case of a crisis which is beyond the scope of our role of providing spiritual support and religious advice, we encourage you to seek the assistance of a professional healthcare provider.

Please send any inquiries to

 

We provide the following community oriented services.

Wiccan Moot

At Wiccan Moot we celebrate the 8 Sabbats. We organize, plan, and pay for space on a monthly basis. It is a joyful and spiritual place where Wiccans, and people who are friendly to Wicca, come together to practice and to learn about our traditions.

The circle is welcoming of complete beginners, we consider it a teaching circle, and questions about what we're doing while we're doing it, are welcomed. On non–sabbat event nights we facilitate discussion of Wiccan religious, spiritual and magickal topics.

For more information about Wiccan Moot please see our Wiccan Moot specific webpage.

Pagan Pub Study

Pagan Pub Study is a monthly Pagan–studies branch of Wiccan Moot. It's a little less formal, a little more social and happens at a pub. We meet once a month, the second Wednesday of each month, from 8pm on. We are slowly working our way through one of the top rated books on Celtic mythology: Celtic Myths and Legends by Peter Berresford Ellis.

You don't need your own copy of the book. And you don't need to know anything to come and join in. We pass the book around, and take turns reading, for about an hour. Reading aloud is optional, if you prefer only to listen and join the conversation, that's acceptable. We only read the text when we're together, so there is no requirement to read a certain minimum on your own. We use the text to expand our knowledge of Celtic myths and deepen our connections to the Celtic deities, whom we invoke at Wicca Moot, and to spark discussion.

To be kept in the loop about about upcoming event dates, please fill out and submit the form under the Participate section of this site.



We are a non–profit Wiccan Fellowship and donations are welcomed.



Upcoming Events Mailing List

We maintain a mailing list used very sparingly, to send out notifications and reminders about upcoming events. Typically there are only around two emails sent per month, usually the day before, or sometimes the day of, either Wiccan Moot or Pagan Pub Study. Just so you don't forget.

The events we are notifying you about are free of cost. You may leave the mailing list whenever you want simply by replying to it and requesting to be removed. The list is maintained by people, not by machines.

To join the mailing list, please fill out and submit the form under the Participate section of this site.

Private Online Community

We maintain, host and moderate the Online Community website for Wiccans and Pagans in the Kingston area. If you are interested in getting access, reach out to us using the Join Our Community contact form and check the box that indicates your interested in the Online Community.

It is our intention to create and maintain a positive and helpful space online, where members of the local community can share information, links, opinions, resources, notes and more, online. Privacy and freedom from online harassment are of utmost importance to us.
