February Feast (Imbolg) 2018

This February Feast marks the inaugural rite of the Protogrove of the Singing Oak Springs. I was fortunate enough to have a hand in planning the ritual and was tasked with drafting the liturgy, a responsibility I very much enjoyed. The hearth culture for the evening was Insular Celtic, and we honored Brigid as the deity of the evening. We gathered at rented space in a local community center, and 5 friends gathered to celebrate the occasion.

In my own liturgical practice, music plays a central role, and I wanted to incorporate as much as I could into this rite. After conferring with the group, I chose “We Approach the Sacred Grove” for our processional song, and I played soft instrumental music during all of the prayers and sacrifices.

This occasion is also of note because it marks an important anniversary for me, so  I chose to renew my Dedicant’s Oath during the rite
