Connecticut’s First Open Wiccan & Pagan Temple
"In Celebration of the Old Religions" Since 1995

Our goal is threefold:
* First, to assist practitioners in achieving a spiritual balance that brings them into true harmony with the Gods.
* Second, to bring to the non-Pagan population an understanding that we are a positive, reputable and life-affirming religious and lifestyle alternative.
* Third, to achieve for Wiccans and Pagans the same rights and freedoms enjoyed by other more mainstream religions.

Services we provide:
* Spiritual counseling
* Teaching
* Ritual
* Rites of passage
* Legal Hand-fastings
* Requiems
* Hospital Visitations and Healings
* Prison Ministry
* Advocacy for Religious Freedoms
* Community contacts
* Community outreach

The Panthean Temple was founded on October 31st, 1995 under our old name of the Pagan Community Church. We are a growing community in the Valley, New Haven County, Connecticut area. Our temple is incorporated and federally recognized as a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization as of 1997 and our temple is a member of the Connecticut Association of Nonprofits. Rev. Alicia Lyon Folberth is the President and Priestess of our temple, as well as one of its founders, and is legally recognized as clergy in the state of Connecticut.

We host open public rituals on the Sabbats, and weekly classes, as well as drum circles, concerts, workshops, guest speakers, and fundraisers. Sabbats during the warm months (Litha-Lughnassadh-Mabon) at Osbornedale State Park, and our large fund raisers at Schrieber’s Farm in Oxford, which directly benefits our Land Fund. It is our goal to buy land upon which we will build a church and community center of our own. In the cold months for this year we will be using the community room at the Derby Neck Library. We are perhaps best known for our large festival: 'Beltaine: A Pagan Odyssey'

We have a temple structure, and there are four levels of participation: Open (anyone) , Temple Member, Outer Court, and Court Ceffylwen/Inner Court (closed coven/grove/circle) . Many of our events are open to the community, but some, such as our Esbats and more advanced classes, are available only to our members.

Members may apply to become students and attend structured Core Classes if a deeper level of training is desired. Ordination is available only within our structure and through acceptance, participation and commitment within the Inner Court.

We are open to Witches and Pagans of all traditions who honor harm none, which we consider to be a universal tenet of all true spiritual paths. Our practices however are devotional, and are primarily Odyssean tradition, although individual rituals may vary depending on the people leading them and the traditions they practice, but we are not eclectic. For more information about Odyssean tradition, the WCC, and our Canadian Elders, Tamarra and Richard James please visit the Wiccan Church of Canada Web site at:

We welcome people of all ages regardless of race, sexual orientation or physical disability. Children are welcome at ALL Open Events, but must have a parent or guardian with them if they are under 18 years of age. We do our best to provide an open, family friendly atmosphere and a safe environment for the children. We are a mature, established group whose focus is that of sincere worship, learning and growth, where drug use and heavy alcohol use are not welcome for obvious reasons.

Classes are currently held privately We always have room for sincere students.

Please join us for our Beltaine Annual Festival & Camping Event

You are welcome to come and join us at our Open Events!
