LGBTQ+ Blessing Rite for Pride Month

Date: Tuesday, June 26, 18

Doors open 7 pm, ritual begins promptly at 7:30 pm

Place: Friends Meeting House (Oakland/Shadyside)

Sassafras Grove celebrates Pride month with a Blessing Rite to honor Eros who teaches us all the ways of loving. We invite all Pagan and Pagan-friendly LGBTQ+ folk and allies to celebrate with us the diversity of the human heart!

During our rite we will hold space to honor the heroes who fought for the right to openly love and remember any who are no longer with us.

What to Bring

An offering for Eros and an offering to honor and your personal heroes if you wish

Alcohol is not permitted onsite, even as an offering. Please respect the traditions of our hosts.

The Friends Meeting House is located at 4836 Ellsworth Avenue in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh’s East End. There is a small parking lot adjacent to the building in addition to on-street parking. You can find a link to a map for the Meeting House on the front page of their Web site at

Plant a Tree! Over the next year, Sassafras Grove will be collecting cash donations to be used to plant trees through the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of the Earth Mother. For just $2.00 we can plant a tree in a National Forest! So if you have an extra dollar or two, please consider donating. We’ll keep you updated quarterly on the planting progress!

There is no cost to attend our rites and events, but we do rely on donations to help us cover the cost of space rental and supplies. If you can, please support your local Druids!

If you have any questions, let us know! Looking forward to seeing you!

Bright Blessings!

Maria, Scribe,

Sassafras Grove ADF
