Cakes of Light Baking & Massapalooza Prep Day Sat – 28 Sep, 2019 10AM – 4PM

·        Please Bring:  Potluck lunch/drinks/snacks and labor to make the Lodge Massapalooza ready

Event Description: 

Massapalooza is a large event where the Mass and similar rituals are performed by various mass teams.  William Blake Lodge hosts guests during this time and it is an opportunity to put our best foot forward.  In order to prepare for the big day a number of large tasks need to be done.  Many hands make light work and there are tasks for all skill levels and energies.

Main Goal:  Bake Cakes of Light supply for numerous masses.  If you have personal Cake of Light baking needs, we can fold those in as well.  No Baking Experience needed!  We will teach.  We have recipes!  We will bake all of the needed glute free ones and then move to gluten containing cakes to avoid cross contamination.

Other work:  

·         Touching up the paint on the brick wall

·         Washing the library floor

·         Sewing of new house robes

UTOS Service for the Spirits of Tenacity – Sat – 5 Oct, 2019

Please arrive no earlier than 3:00pm and no later than 3:30pm.
$15 admission

What to bring to a Universal Temple of Spirits Service:

The spirit you’d normally call upon for tenacity. We’ve had monotheists, polytheists, pluralists, and animists (yes, simultaneously) at our events. So long as they are willing, for the service at least, to play nice with others in a pantheistic setting, they are welcome. Also, this Spirit should have a name and/or a relationship with you and be someone you and others would actually want to meet.

  • A design for them (if you have none, meditate on this ahead of time, research it, or ask us)
  • A song for them (ditto)
  • A potluck dish/drinks to share, with a list of ingredients
  • Feel free to bring altar items and decorations, such as flowers, etc.
  • Drums, if you drum
  • A donation of $15
