Main Ritual - Gathering of the Clans

Sound the horns and send out the call! The Florida Pagan Gathering is calling forth the Clans! This Samhain the Clans come together at the Florida Pagan Gathering. Please join the Coven of the Quill, Sword and Chalice, the Coven of the Liminal Path and many other friends within the community as we present “The Calling of the Clans.” Ten years ago we first presented this ritual as a way to celebrate the many groups, Covens and solitaries that together make up our community. Coming together in community gives us a chance to celebrate, enjoy friendships and fellowship, share our history and learn from one another. We invite all individuals, organizations, networking groups, covens, groves, circles and kindreds to participate in the ritual by wearing your colors and carrying your pennants and banners, choosing a representative to speak for your groups and add a torch to the ritual fire. Stand with us, and be welcome among us. The Clans assemble at Samhain!
