I’m ordained!

It’s official: I am now an ordained High Priestess through the Order of the White Moon!

This is the culmination of almost two years of work and is a big step in terms of legal recognition for me. I will now be able to perform marriages/handfastings and be recognized by most institutions as “real” clergy.

If you’re in the area, we’ll be celebrating at Sin E pub in Pentagon Row next Saturday, June 2nd, starting at about 6pm. We should be in the back room by the fireplace. Come by and lift a glass!

      Thank you! It might have given you problems because I had a troll, so comments from new commenters go into moderation. Sorry bout that.
