Midwest Regional Local Council of COG

Key Contact: Membership Officer

Status: Established Group
Community Support: Legal Clergy...




Group Overview: The Midwest Regional Council is a local council of the Covenant of the Goddess that serves the states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. Our membership is comprised of established covens and elder solitaries practicing Wicca or Witchcraft. We meet every other month (six times a year, weather permitting) rotating through the states for official business and fellowship. We try to support one another and encourage local networking and community building.

The Covenant of the Goddess was founded in 1975 to increase cooperation among Witches and to secure for Witches and covens the legal protection enjoyed by members of other religions.

The Covenant is an umbrella organization of cooperating autonomous Witch/Wiccan, congregations and individual practitioners, with the power to confer credentials on its qualified clergy. It fosters cooperation and mutual support among Witches/Wiccans and secures for them the legal protections enjoyed by members of other religions. The Covenant is non-hierarchical and governed by consensus. Two-thirds of its clergy are women.

The Covenant is coordinated by its national board of directors. Many of its activities are conducted at the regional level by local councils. The Covenant holds an annual national conference open to the Witch/Wiccan community, as well as regional conferences, and publishes a newsletter. In recent years, the Covenant has taken part in spiritual and educational conferences, interfaith/intrafaith outreach, large public rituals, environmental activism, community projects and social action, as well as efforts to correct negative stereotypes and promote accurate media portrayals. Its clergy perform legal marriages (handfastings) , preside at funerals and other rituals of life-transition, and provide counseling to Witches/Wiccans including those in the military and in prisons. The Covenant also provides youth awards, sponsorship of college and university student groups, and legal assistance in instances of discrimination.
