Columbia Grove's aim is to help fulfill the physical, spiritual, and intellectual needs of the Columbia-Willamette Pagan community. We hope to positively represent an Indo-European Polytheist religion through both public and private rituals, as well as through specific workshops and community projects. Our intent is to serve the greater good of the public and society as a whole through an adherence to meaningful social action. All pagans and pagan-friendly peoples are welcomed to join our rituals and they are Family Friendly as well. During our rituals we welcome the varied Gods and Goddesses of all our guests, their unique ancestors, and abundant spirits of nature.

Join the Druids of Columbia Grove for a Roman winter solstice celebration as we celebrate the Roman festival of Saturnalia. We will honor the Roman God Saturn, a god of abundance, agriculture and time, who ruled over a 'golden age'. Saturnalia is a time when everything is turned on its head. A time of feasting, role reversals, free speech, gift-giving, merriment and revelry. Appropriate offerings for Saturn may include food, drink, or oil.
We will assemble at 6:30 PM, the ritual itself starts at 7:00 PM sharp, and lasts about an hour and a half, followed by food and fellowship. We do not have a closed circle ritual so you are allowed to arrive late; we simply ask that you join us quietly.
We'd love for you to bring a dish to share at our potluck, but no one will be turned away from our table for lack of contribution; you'll find that our spread is always impressive and delicious, and many food sensitivities are regularly taken into account.
All are welcome to join the fun and festivities. No experience in Druidry required! Everyone is encouraged to take part in the merriment.
To help us present excellent public rituals, we suggest a donation of $5, but no-one will be turned away for lack of funds. Your donation will also enter you in our raffle, prize to be announced soon!

They talk about a variety of topics that relate to Druidism and Druidry, including ancestor veneration, nature veneration, reciprocity, ethical behavior at public rituals, and various Hearth Cultures, among a variety of other topics, and they interview other Druids about their experiences and specialties.
