Wiccan Moot is a meeting place of Wiccans and Pagans and friends of

We will soon be halfway through autumn. The leaves change colours, the last harvests are collected. The nights grow longer, the days every shorter.
This month, we will be hosting a Samhain Sabbat ritual. A celebration of the Pagan New Year halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. The Horned God, the Lord of the Grain grows tired and old, and prepares to die.
The Kingston Community House affords us a private, comfortable location where we can explore practical components of Wiccan ritual and celebration. Our rituals are geared for beginners to learn and practice.
There is parking along 99 York Street. Come in the main front red doors. The livingroom is on the main floor, second door on the left. If you're uncertain, ask about the Kingston Environmentalist Study Group.
You must be 19 years of age or older to participate in this event.
It is our goal to serve the community to the best of our ability. However, there are laws which prohibit teaching alternative religious values to minors.
We sincerely apologize if this inconveniences a young seeker.

* Our membership with The Kingston Community House is under the group name: Kingston
Environmentalist Study Group. And our stated description is:
“We are a small group who are looking for a quiet intimate environment where we can get together once a month to engage in lively discussion about the books we are reading, across a wide variety of topics from environmentalism, ecology, to natural living.”
We trust this description of our goals is suitable not only for our use of The Kingston Community House, but also for your use in protecting the privacy you deserve should you find yourself needing to explain to anyone where you go one Wednesday evening a month.
