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.

For anyone who wishes to support the work of Sacred Grove financially, we provide the opportunity here.  Through 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, maintains lists of local clergy endorsed by Sacred Grove SWC or the Fellowship of the Sacred Grove to bear credentials as Visiting Clergy.  The picture badge of Visiting Clergy provides free parking at the hospital and authorizes visits to those patients who have requested their own clergy to attend, without restriction to visiting hours.

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, has served the hospital for over 10 years as a volunteer with the Pastoral Care Department.  She currently serves as the on-call chaplain for all emergency (end-of-life) requests on behalf of non-Catholic patients for one weekend each month — from 5 pm Friday until 8:30 am Monday.
