Samhain  - The Third Harvest

Join the Temple of Witchcraft for our first ritual in Portland, Maine. We will be turning the wheel to Samhain, the third harvest, a time where the veils between the worlds grow thin and we open the way for the spirits to commune with us. Join Silver and Casey as we celebrate the Witch's New Year.

An ancestral altar will honor those who have passed before us. You are welcome to bring a photograph of your ancestor or loved one who has passed, or an offering of a candle to be burned to the Mighty Dead.

Open to all faiths and traditions interested in celebrating the mystery of the seasons in Perfect Love and Trust. If you have questions about the ritual, please email: silver@templeofwitchcraft.org or casey@templeofwitchcraft.org.

There will be after-ritual potluck, please bring something to share with the community.

As this is a green sanctuary, we ask that attendees bring their own reusable plates and cutlery in a zip-lock bag. Thank you for helping us to keep this event green!

Ritual Potluck

We have the opportunity to share the bounty of the harvest together as a community with our after-sabbat potluck feast! Please bring an item to share, based on the first letter of your last name:
  • A–E: A sweet or savory dessert: cookies, cake, pie, fresh or dried fruit, chocolate (good for grounding!), etc.
  • F–J: Beverages (non-alcoholic, and no sodas, please): tea, cider, fruit juice, lemonade, etc.
  • K–O: A grain item such as bread or crackers, possibly with an accompaniment like cheese or hummus, if you wish.
  • P–S: A side dish, perhaps a salad of vegetables or fruits (or both!). Try to keep salads vegetarian (no meat) or vegan (no animal products, including milk or cheese).
  • T–Z: A main dish which could include a protein (either meat or vegetarian).
If you can, please label your food item so we know what it is.  As our event is held in a green sanctuary, please remember to bring your own reusable plate and cutlery in a zip-lock bag to reduce waste. Our Mother Ministry will provide the necessary serving utensils, cups, and napkins. If you have questions about what to bring, please email cancer@templeofwitchcraft.org.

Samhain Coat Drive

This Samhain, join the Temple as we share the warmth: The colder months are upon us, and in New England we know just how cold that can be! The Temple will be collecting new and gently used (clean) winter coats for a local shelter. Please consider all ages and sizes when donating a coat, from infant to adult. If you have questions, please email donations@templeofwitchcraft.org.
