There will be lots of changes to our website in the coming months. We are devolving our membership applications, and the centralised application system is being replaced by Membership Centres run by Keybearers who facilitate Sanctuaries. We hope this will help resolve the sometimes long delays in applications being processed, and furthermore that it will encourage communities to grow around language, interest and location into the future.
The Covenant of Hekate has five sanctuaries run by Keybearers that are now also membership centers. Rather than applying for membership as it was in the past, and having everything filter through one person, we are now sharing that joyous responsibility. You will see the Membership Sanctuaries listed below and you may contact any one of your choosing. Best it be one close to you. Also, best to select one by the language you speak. If, however, one does not mention your language, write to one of us, using an email address below and we will help direct you.
The Sanctuary of Hekate Polymorphos
Coventry, United Kingdom
Kenn Payne, Keybearer
The Sanctuary of Hekate Polymorphos, based in the West Midlands, United Kingdom, seeks to facilitate and support a growing community brought together in celebration of the Goddess Hekate in Her many forms and names, helping individuals to find their way along the Paths to Hekate, meeting in fellowship, a spirit of understanding and learning from each other.
The Sanctuary of Hekate Propolos, was created in the month of July 2019, to provide a space in Austin, Texas for those who honor Hekate or who would wish to know more about Her. We do this by offering occasional rituals to the public as well as “meet-and-greet” meetings to form community around the Sanctuary. Our vision is to widen awareness of Hekate and to offer opportunities for the community in ways to honor Her. We serve as a membership Center For the Covenant of Hekate.
This site maintains a shrine where you may leave prayers, petitions and blessings. Information about the Covenant of Hekate is available there as well as about the Sanctuary of Hekate Propolos.
For those who wish to study may do so with us at the Liminal Thealogical Seminary.
Sanctuary of Hekate Propylaia
Located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Tenerife, Spain
Languages: English and Spanish
Contact: Giovanna Diaz, Keybearer
We honour Hekate as the world soul and the guardian that stands at every entrance to the crossroads of the mysteries. We hold daily devotions, rituals, workshops, classes, reading and formative activities for all members as well as having communal rituals in the Hekatean modern festivities.
The sanctuary located in Athens, Greece is focused on historical evidence of Hekate’s worship and the learning of the Greek language as part of the path towards her understanding and worship. The sanctuary organises tours and trips in the archaeological sites of Attica where Hekate had been worshiped among other Gods or on her own.
The Sanctuary of Hekate Hegemonen
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
Language: Portuguese (Br)
Francine Derschner, Keybearer e Patricia Elizium, Torchbearer http://santuariodehekatehegemonen.com/
The Sanctuary of Hekate Hegemonen located in São Paulo, Brasil is focused on the research and study of the History of the Goddess Hekate as part of the journey to get closer to her mysteries. Our rites and practices are modern, inspired by Western Mystery Traditions as well as Hellenic Polytheism. We are always seeking, through historical bases, to make Goddess worship accessible to the needs of modern devotees. We choose the epithet Hegemonen, which means “Guide”, to name our Sanctuary, for just as Hekate guides Persephone on her journey from the underworld, each of us was brought and guided by the Goddess Hekate to answer her call. As Hegemonen guided and illuminated our steps, we wish to be a light for new seekers willing to know and experience the Goddess Hekate.
MEMBERSHIP applications: If you applied before the end of January 2022 please note that your application will be processed. If you have applied but have not heard back, please contact one of the membership sanctuaries listed below for help. If you already have a confirmation and invitation to continue, please continue, your application will be transferred to one of the new membership centres based on your location, language or specific interests you expressed. Those who applied and whose memberships were confirmed prior to the end of January 2022 will be treated as having applied to the Soteira Sanctuary. You can use your existing membership numbers, or replace the CoH with Soteira.
The Covenant of Hekate is an international community of devotees who honour the Goddess Hekate, in all her many forms, by all her many faces and guises. We come from many different cultures and traditions, but we share an understanding of Hekate as the “Soteira” and “Axis Mundi” as a common and mutual ground for exploring her.
The Covenant of Hekate IS NOT a magical or spiritual tradition, instead we are a community united by our passion for the Goddess Hekate, in her many forms, faces and manifestations in the 21st century.
We are run by volunteers who make all our activities, including the website, Noumenia News and other activities possible. Membership of the CoH is free and members are never asked for financial contributions.
With our foundations solidly built on an understanding of, and appreciation for, the rich and diverse history of this Goddess, we reach out into the world following her light through the centuries in the modern day and beyond. Find out more about the Covenant of Hekate.
The Covenant of Hekate was born, in part, out of the Rite of Her Sacred Fires. Find out more about it – Rite of Her Sacred Fires. Join the Facebook discussion group, share photos and experience Facebook Rite of Her Sacred Fires
