Preservers of the Craft of the Wise
We seek to educate, inspire, and involve our community to promote spiritual growth and preserve the Craft of the Wise. For over 25 years we have held teaching circles for the Sabbats and many of the Esbats. Our gatherings honor a Celtic Pantheon.
In March 2008, our Circle was officially recognized as a church in New York State and has since gone on to achieve Federal recognition by attaining 501[c](3) status.
As preservers of the path, we are dedicated to growing our Priesthood from within our congregation through many years of dedication and handwork.
