Our Community

To the extent of available spiritual and material resources, we will: teach those who seek; aid those in need; comfort those who for reasons of religion, conscience, ethnicity, or sex suffer oppression; and resist tyranny in all forms.

     The Covenant of Five Tenets

Individuals affiliated with Sacred Grove are active in other religious or spiritual groups and in public service.  We bring our spiritual and material resources to bear where there is need, without seeking to promote our affiliation or seek contributions to support our work.

Through our affiliation with Sacred Well Congregation, contributions to Sacred Grove Community Circle (SWC) are tax deductible under 501(c)3.

Visiting clergy

The Pastoral Care Department at Inova Fairfax Medical Campus, a level 1 regional trauma center, supports visiting clergy with free parking at the hospital when visiting those patients of their own congregations who have requested their own clergy to attend.

In addition to Sacred Grove participants, local Pagans who find themselves in this hospital are welcome to request a visit by Pagan clergy.

On-call interfaith chaplaincy

Khalila RedBird, cleric priestess of Sacred Grove, served the hospital for over 17 years as a volunteer with the Pastoral Care Department.  She served as the on-call chaplain for all emergency (end-of-life) requests on behalf of non-Catholic patients for at least one weekend each month — from 5 pm Friday until 8:30 am Monday.
