1st Pagan Ritual To Be Held In WV Prison

Proclaimed by: wvdonovan
Proclaimed from: Huntington, West Virginia


Proclamation...

Appalachian Pagan Ministry to hold Ancestor Ritual at Lakin Correctional on Samhain!!

Appalachian Pagan Ministry, founded by Rev. Donna Donovan in Huntington, WV, is now the first Pagan ministry allowed in West Virginia state prisons. Up till now, pagan inmates were allowed to meet once a week, and to celebrate 2 holidays a year, but were not allowed to have any sort of religious ceremony or ritual without outside pagan clergy present. Rev. Donovan and the Appalachian Pagan Ministry are the first allowed in by the West Virginia Dept. of Corrections.

“The ladies are very excited about the Ancestor Ritual on Samhain. This will be the first pagan ritual ever done in any West Virginia State prison. We are making history here, folks, and this will be but just the first of many steps forward.” – Rev. Donna Donovan

Approximately 2.3 million men & women are incarcerated, 95% of prisoners are released.... approx. 700, 000 of those will be this year. Some of those will be in your community. Wouldn't you rather they have a chance of rehabilitation before release? West Virginia has the fourth lowest recidivism rate in the nation, largely due to the progressive thinking of the WV Dept of Corrections. Let's become the state with the lowest rate in the nation. Help us to help our fellow pagans practice and grow in the faith of their choosing.
