The Coven of the Black Vulture officially hatched, after a period of roughly two years, on August 8, 2009 at our annual retreat. It is led by Lord Rath, and is based out of Alexandria, Virginia. The coven’s work is somewhat influenced by Rath’s experiences with the martial arts, and ceremonial magick. The coven is accepting new members, provided certain qualifications are met.
Lord Rath came to the Church after 16 years of both solitary and varying levels of coven practice. He was Dedicated to the Coven of the Albino Bat in the Winter of 2005. He received his Third Degree in the Spring of 2008 and was ordained at Lammas 2011.
He has led public rituals for the Fertile Ground Gathering 2011, and the Moonfire CUUPS group based in Arlington. He has continued to lead Open Sabbat celebrations at Sacred Circle Bookshop from Mabon 2008 to the present.
He has taught at Shenandoah Midsummer 2011,, Fertile Ground Gathering in 2010 and 2011, the 2010 Firefly Housewarming, Northern Virginia Pagan Pride Day 2010 and 2011, and at the Moonfire CUUPS group. He continues to teach at Sacred Circle Bookshop.
