CedarLight Grove, is a Druid Fellowship in the Pagan community dedicated to the worship of the Gods and Goddesses, the Ancestors, the Spirits of Nature and Mother Earth.  Your membership will ensure CedarLight’s future and enable us to continue our mission of worship, of service and of teaching. They deserve no less. They deserve a sanctuary where Their people can gather to worship, to pray and to learn the lessons of their teachings. They deserve the honor and the love that the Sanctuary of CedarLight manifests.
