Group Overview: The Orlando Pagan Collective was formed in order to serve the religious and spiritual needs of the rapidly growing Central Florida Wiccan community. OPC is not a coven, nor do we dictate specific tradition. Instead, we strive to function as an umbrella group, designed to encourage Pagans of many paths and traditions to come together for worship, socializing, education, assistance, and peace.
Why Join the OPC?
Because by joining the OPC, you help to support and stabilize a unique community in Florida. One that has been in existence for almost 20 years. A community that while based on Wiccan principles is open and accessible to people of many different and beautiful paths. By joining, you help to ensure that events such as the Pagan Picnic, Moon Circle and Sabbats continue to take place and grow. Without the financial support of its members, the OPC could not exist and would not be able to host the variety of events which it currently holds each year.
The OPC is a unique volunteer organization. All of our activities are organized and run by volunteers. We have no paid employees and do not require our members to volunteer. It is encouraged by not required. Members of the OPC have the power to change and refocus the organization if they so choose by opting to become a voting member after one year of the membership or by volunteering on one of the many organizational committees. Members are welcome to attend monthly Board Meetings and participate in discussion.
The OPC offers its members a number of discounts at local stores, a newsletter published four times a year as well as discounts to OPC events and classes. A list of discounts is available in the newsletter.
Membership in the OPC is open to the Pagan Community, meaning you do not have to follow any particular Wiccan/Pagan path to become a member. Members agree to abide by the Code of Ethics listed on the membership application. After one year of membership, members have the option of becoming a voting member. Voting members agree to abide by the principles contained in the Wiccan Rede and to maintain the Pagan character of the OPC. Voting members do not have to declare themselves Wiccan. The opinions, paths and traditions of all of the OPC members are respected equally.
Code of Ethics:
All members of the OPC are expected to read, sign and abide by the following Code of Ethics.
I will consider my pledged word sacred.
I will respect all other's right to freedom in all areas, including safety, privacy and philosophy.
I will respect the life of this planet and will show this respect by my actions.
I will seek to repair that which I have damaged, and to make amends to those whom I have harmed, to the best of my abilities.
I will remember that honesty is valuable in thought, word and deed.
I will not knowingly bring harm to the OPC, Inc., nor any of its members
