Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPs)
Please join the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans of First Unitarian Church or CUUPs, as we celebrate the turning of the Wheel of the Year with our Sabbat Celebrations.
Sabbat Circles are open to the public and anyone with a positive path is welcome. Our Celebrations are held at the First Unitarian Church of Louisville.
Ostara or the Spring Equinox is the festival of Spring. In ancient days, this was a time of sowing and planting. Today, in the earth based traditions, Ostara is a time for us to put plans into motion, sowing the seeds of ideas that may not reach fruition for many months.
Please join us on Sunday, March 23rd as we celebrate Ostara here in the Church. The Ritual will be followed by a pitch-in and share dinner. Times are below.
- Imbolc - February 2, 2014
- Ostara - March 23rd, 2014
- Beltane- April 27, 2014
- Midsummer - Midsummer will be on Wednesday June 4th (please note day change) because many of us will be attending Pagan Spirit Gathering in Northern Illinois the week of Midsummer.

Our Sabbat Circles are held on Sunday night. Doors open at 5:30 PM and Circle starts at 6PM. A potluck dinner follows around 7 PM so please bring something to share with others and stay to enjoy conversation with those of a like mind.
In addition to community and fellowship, we offer classes. Our classes are a blend of lecture and discussion with seekers, those new to the path, and experienced practitioners in attendance. We host a variety of topics that have included Four Cornerstones of Magick, Sabbat Lore/Traditions, Beginning Meditation, Divination, Herbal Magick and many other topics.
We are currently using a Pagan curriculum that has topics including God/Goddesses, Divination, Candle Magick and many other topics.
Classes are on the first and third Wednesday of each Month and fall classes have begun. Each week we discuss topics that are independent of each other so drop in when you are able to join us.
7:00pm until about 8:30pm
CUUPs is a free and open community of people who practice earth-based spiritualities.
There is no charge to attend Circles or classes.
