The Wheel turns and spring is on the horizon! We are offering a fusion of online and in-person activities at our Congregation in Western Maryland this month. Please join us as we stay connected and come together to honor the Earth, Gods, Ancestors, and Wheel of the Year. Please email FCUUPS(at)gmail(dot)com for Zoom links.
Join us for the Witching Hour, every 1st and 3rd Sunday at 4pm! This is an informal social time to enjoy a beverage of your choice, process the previous week, crack a dirty joke or two, and build relationships. We believe cultivating community care is an important facet of us not just surviving, but thriving in the times we live in. All are welcome in the spirit of hospitality. Hosted by Ursa Sylvest and Frederick CUUPS. The Witching Hour is currently on Zoom, Please email fcuups(at)gmail(dot)com for the Zoom link.
Join Frederick CUUPS for a Masquerade Ball as we dance into the night with the Spring Court of Faerie! A full moon graces our Ostara Eve revels – what wonders shall we see? Please come in a faerie or fantasy costume as we celebrate the return of the spring. Purchase tickets here.
