UUCM Sacred Wheel (CUUPS)

UUCM Sacred Wheel (CUUPS) will hold their first meeting of the year on Sunday, September 1, 2019 at 11:30 AM in the Rotunda.

UUCM Sacred Wheel will also hold a Mabon celebration on Friday, September 20, 2019 at 7:30 PM in the Rotunda. Mabon (Autumn Equinox) divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year’s crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea’n Fo’mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.

All are welcome to attend. For more information on UUCM Sacred Wheel or any of their events, email Ann Trip at: ann.otter.trip@gmail.com. For more information on CUUPS visit cuups.org. UUCM Sacred Wheel is also on Facebook at: facebook.com/groups/UUCMSacredWheel


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, Aka 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.

UUCM Sacred Wheel is also on Facebook at: facebook.com/groups/UUCMSacredWheel.  Upcoming meeting dates to come. Check our Facebook group, UU Montclair’s page or UUMontclair.org for our next meet up.

UUCM Sacred Wheel (CUUPS) will be hosting a Summer Solstice celebration on Friday, June 21, 2019 at 7:30 PM in the Rotunda. 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.’ Light refreshments will be provided.  All are welcome.
