Hallow Keepers

Standard

The Hallow Keepers is a system of roles for participation in ADF group rituals. It makes it easy to remember who is in charge of what (and takes some pressure off the host/officiant if it’s usually just one person doing everything). Plus it’s just fun, so it’s good to use in family rituals as well, if you have participants mature enough (and willing) to take on such roles. The host of the ritual can choose to also be a Hallow Keeper, if need be, but will have plenty to do without taking a Hallow Keeper role.

The Well Keeper is in charge of…

  • water purification
  • Well Hallow opening and closing
  • offerings given to the Well
  • Ancestor invocations and their offerings, and thanking Ancestors at the end of ritual
  • the waters of life; filling cup, blessing it, passing it around the circle

The Tree Keeper is in charge of…

  • the Two Powers meditation
  • Earth Mother prayer
  • Tree Hallow opening and closing
  • offerings given to the Tree
  • Nature Spirit invocations and their offerings, and thanking Nature Spirits at the end of ritual

The Fire Keeper is in charge of…

  • lighting the Fire and keeping it burning safely
  • fire/incense purification
  • Fire Hallow opening and closing
  • offerings given to the Fire
  • Patron of Occasion invocations and their offerings, and thanking Patrons at the end of ritual
