In 2014, Sacred Grove was instrumental in establishing RSOM as a church incorporated in Maryland with a mission of providing care to the caregivers. Khalila RedBird, a community and hospital chaplain, was one of the 7 founding Trustees, eventually serving as credentialing officer for the church as an endorsing body.
The other 6 Trustees brought multiple faith traditions to the ministry, serving as chaplains and spiritual caregivers in diverse venues. In particular, RSOM supported chaplaincies in federal and state correctional settings for Witches, Wiccans, and Santerians.
With the Passing of two of the founding Trustees and the upheavals of the pandemic, the future of RSOM is in question.
