Make connections over dinner

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

If your're looking for some conversation, a way to satisfy curiosity or just make a connection, there is a simple to accomplish these objectives. Just sit down to dinner.

For several years, the Our Lady of the Woods has hosted a dinner the first Friday of every month. The event is not to escape the chore of cooking at home but to provide outreach to the community.

Rowan, the high priestess of Our Lady of the Woods, explained while the local Wiccan coven opens its Sabbaths to the community, the events do not really give participants an opportunity to socialize.

“There really isn’t any time to get to know people,” she said.

As a result, the coven hosts the dinners so anyone in the community can socialize or learn a little more about Our Lady of the Woods.

“It is really important to connect with individual people in the organization,” Rowan said.

Typically, about eight to 10 people attend the dinners.

Our Lady of the Woods is unique from other Wicca groups because it is more public.  Therefore, the dinners are opportunities for other Wiccans to socialize with those who share their beliefs as well as provide information with those who are interested in Wicca.

The next dinner will be held at 6 p.m. Jan. 8 at the Pyramid Café.
