COVID-19 Relief Fund


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Circle Sanctuary has had to shift all programming from in-person events to online gatherings, resulting in major decreases in revenue. Unless circumstances change significantly in the next few months, Circle Sanctuary will be struggling financially in 2021.

For more information on how Circle has responded to the pandemic, you may review our 2020 Annual Report or look at the Special Financial Statement published at Samhain.


In conjunction with the Wisconsin Council of Churches, Circle Sanctuary is co-sponsoring Faithful Action for a Healthy Wisconsin, an online multi-faith rally & press briefing on November 16 at 10am Central.  This online gathering is to show support for healthcare workers serving our communities, as well as supporting public health officials in their efforts to urge all to follow guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Racial Equality & Social Justice

mlk-quoteCircle Sanctuary is actively engaged in work for racial equality and social justice as part of our interfaith ministries.  Since our founding in 1974, Circle Sanctuary ministers and community members have collaborated with many institutions, communities, and projects to support and manifest equality, liberty, and justice for all. 

Circle Sanctuary recognizes and honors the divine nature and essential dignity of all humans, as detailed in our Inclusiveness Policy:

Circle Sanctuary mourns the death of George Floyd and others, and calls for justice and social change.  Circle Sanctuary supports the work being undertaken under the banner of Black Lives Matter, and continues our multiracial, multicultural and multilingual education and networking endeavors.  Circle Sanctuary is engaged in local, statewide, national, and global collaborations with many religious, spiritual, and freethinker communities, organizations, and initiatives across the USA and around the world to bring about racial equality and racial justice for humans of all colors, races, and ethnicities.

Celebrating Earth Day

Earth Day FlagStarting in 1970 and celebrated on April 22, Earth Day is commonly thought of as the birth of today's environmental movement.  Organized by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day is marked worldwide by gatherings, educational events, and lobbying efforts for environmental causes.  As a church of Nature Spirituality, Circle Sanctuary has celebrated Earth Day with a free public event since 1990.

winged-caduceus-v2Circle Sanctuary Spiritual Support
During COVID-19 Pandemic

Circle Sanctuary recognizes the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic, and is endeavoring to provide spiritual support to all affected.  This pandemic recognizes neither national nor religious boundaries, and we are grateful for those who provide support by tending to the ill, by helping to supply essential goods, and by lending aid to those who feel isolated and in distress.

In accordance with best practices regarding social distancing, we have cancelled in-person celebrations and gatherings until the danger has passed.  And yet the Wheel of the Year does turn, and we are finding and testing new ways to come together to celebrate and find solace in community through today's technology.
