CAYA’s Fourth Annual Virtual Food Drive!

Hey Everyone! Remember how I said you can help out your neighbors in Alameda County? Here's your chance: https://www.vfd-accfb.org/grouphome.aspx?ID=6363

This is year 4 of our virtual food drive, and I've set our goal just a touch higher, at $600. That will translate to about $3600 of food for local children, elders, and families.

Every dollar translates to about $6 worth of food when they buy in bulk, so even a little bit helps!

To help us reach our goal, please be sure to choose CAYA Coven from the pull down menu on your right. We have 6 weeks to raise $600, so I'm sure we can do it!

Also, if you have non-perishable goods to donate directly, there's a barrel for drop off at
The Sacred Well in Oakland.

Blessed Be!

Reminder - Heart and Harvest potluck and ritual - this Saturday Aug 1

Just around the corner...The Cauldron of the Celts, a devotional group within CAYA Coven, heartily invites you and yours to:

The Festival of Heart and Harvest: Feast to Lugh

Saturday, August 1st
Ritual begins at 5pm

We will be at the Picnic site near the Berkeley Center of the Arts entrance located at:
1275 Walnut St
Berkeley, CA 94709

On this day of the Cauldron’s sacred calendar we honor Lugh! Come out to the beautiful Live Oak park and join us for a fine potluck feast of community and joy, as we pay honor to Lugh! Lugh is one the Irish Chieftain gods, the Many Skilled One, he of the Long Arm, Fierce Striker, whose spear is one of the Four Treasures of the Tuatha Dé Danann, and a keeper of many treasures. With the blessing of Lugh mac Ethlenn Ildánach, we will look to each other for the skills we possess to strengthen our community and praise his name. Together we will eat, make offerings to the Youthful Hero, hear tales of how we can all make a sustainable community, and be merry. This feast will be made all the grander by your presence and contribution!
