Pagan Community Notes: exorcism and hexing, Canada Pagan community, Michigan Scholarship Fund, and more.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — The Catland bookstore that hosted the Oct. 20 hex action against Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh found itself the target for an exorcism. According to reports, Father Gary Thomas, the exorcist for the Catholic Diocese of San Jose, California, scheduled two masses prior to the hex event in order to stop it. Father Thomas told The National Catholic Register “that he has witnessed people in the satanic world becoming bolder.” He said that the more confident these so-called Satanists become, the more “the general public will be more accepting of the demonic.”

Roast honours Canadian Pagan elder

GREY COUNTY, Ontario – Mythwood Campground, located an hour and a half north of Toronto, was the scene for a tribute to one of Canadian Paganism’s foremost leaders. On Aug. 19, Tamarra James, high priestess of the Wiccan Church of Canada, was the latest Pagan elder to be “roasted” as part of the Great Pagan Roast series. Now in its fifth year, the series is part of the programming for HearthFire Gathering, an annual festival offered by local organization Tribal Hearth. Roast co-organizer, Khaman Mythwood, explained HearthFire Gathering to The Wild Hunt:
The tribe gathers at Mythwood Campground & Private Retreat, a Pagan and polytheistic spiritual oasis, built to create sacred space for the Pagan community.
