Ministers

Circle Ministers' Work

Circle Sanctuary Ministers provide a variety of spiritual services through Circle Sanctuary. The list of services provided by each minister varies from minister to minister -- please ask for more details.

Ministry training is offered through Circle Sanctuary's Ministry Training Program, which is a guided intensive course.  Students are mentored throughout their journey, learning essential ministerial skills such as: pastoral counseling, leading small and large group ritual, connecting with community, developing an ethical code of conduct, ability to work across traditions, basic education in the tenants of major religions, group problem solving, media interface, interfacing in public institutions, and much more. All students participate in a minimum of a one year practicum that is individually designed to interface the ministerial focus of the student with the overall vision of Circle Sanctuary.

Circle Sanctuary is an endorsing organization for Wiccan and Pagan ministers doing religious services, chaplaincy support, and related work in hospitals, hospice, state and federal prisons, college and university campuses, and US military installations.
