We celebrate the Sacred Wheel of the Year within the UU Congregation at Montclair, hold open discussions, host workshops, bringing awareness, and address stereotypes in a friendly environment.
Meetings and rituals are open to all, but we encourage participants to support both UUCM and CUUPs as best they can.
Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans, A.K.A CUUPs, is the Pagan arm of Unitarian Universalists, open to anyone interested in the spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions.
UUCM Sacred Wheel announces that we are now an official chapter of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPs) organization. This will assist us in networking with other CUUPs chapters, help those who also practice an Earth-based path find us easily and hopefully grow our group and membership at UUCM.
Upcoming Events (all events are multi-platform in the Alliance Room and via Zoom at 7pm):
- Sacred Wheel CUUPs is hosting a multi-platform Litha (Summer Solstice) ritual on June 16, 2023. The summer solstice, also known as midsummer, occurs when one of the Earth’s poles has its maximum tilt toward the Sun. It happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere. The sun reaches its highest position in the sky and is the day with the longest period of daylight. It is also known as Litha or in Druidry as Alban Hefin meaning ‘The Light of the Shore.’
- Sacred Wheel CUUPs will be holding an Open Healing Circle on Friday, July 14, 2023. For those unfamiliar -healing circles are similar to prayers. Healing could be for physical, emotional or spiritual. It is the intent we put into it. If you would like to assist or have a request for yourself or someone else, please join us. If you like to join in and have no experience, we will teach you. Alternatively, if you are new to this, you can just sit back and observe. Stick around afterwards for a sharing of ghost stories. All are welcome.
- Sacred Wheel CUUPs will be holding a multi-platform Lughnasadh ritual on August 5, 2023. Also known as Lammas, or First Harvest, it marks the beginning of the harvest season. The festival’s name is Gaelic for “Commemoration of Lugh,” Lugh is an Celtic God and a member of the Tuatha Dé Danann. Although the sabbat is named after Lugh, it is associated with his foster mother Tailtiu, who cleared the way for the introduction of agriculture in Ireland.

Affirmations can help you create a successful spell. Not too long ago I said that spellwork is not just waving your hands; rattle off some words and voila. I focused on the importance of intent and effort. These are all still true and very important to remember.
