October 2018 News


Thanks to those who attended the Oct 7 monthly meeting!

Here are the Mystic Grove Oct 7 Meeting Minutes if you missed it.  In our efforts to increase transparency, help Mystic Grove friends and fans keep up, and assist forming CUUPS chapters and other groups, we’re making it a goal to make more of our documents “public access.”

The next meeting is November 4 at NOON in Room 1.


Perspephone Altar by Sandie

This month’s photo is from Sandie C. in our Moon Circle group.  This is her Persephone altar. For many of us, creating home altars brings us joy!

If you want to share what lights your  spirit up email your photo to
mysticgrove@orlandouu.org and tell us about it!


We have two Samhain happenings this month.

On October 28, we go to our sister church, University UU.  Adult Religious Education at 9 AM will be “Ask a Pagan” panel Q& A session.  The sermon at 10:30 AM is “The Pagan Wheel of the Year” with a special emphasis on Samhain. Please consider bringing items for a community altar honoring your ancestors so stories can be shared during the social hour after service.  If you have never been to University UU or if its been a while, this might be a good day to visit!

On Nov 3, we have our Samhain ritual at 1U.    Come as you are or dressed in colors of the season: (grey, black, white, etc). “Pagan formal” is encouraged. This is your chance to break out the fancy clothes! Please bring a photo of your ancestor(s) for the community altar if you would like. Ritual begins at 7 PM. Potluck to follow at 8 PM. As a kindness to others, please be sure your dish is labeled with name of dish, name of cook, and any allergenic ingredients.


Here is  what’s happening up to the next meeting.  Come on down and join us any time.  Facebook RSVPs help us plan for supplies, so please check in if you can.

Thank you for your support in both sharing gently used books and coming to buy them for a love offering to benefit the MG Scholarship Fund!  It is our policy to provide free or low cost events.  Our classes always have 1 full scholarship and two 1/2 scholarships  available as well.

We will continue to accept books, tarot decks, and similar small items this year at any monthly meeting or ritual. We will have books out at ritual at the book table.   You can also pop by during office hours during the week and leave book donations at the 1U front office.
