We take a moment at this time to remember Fredrick Howcroft, a member of the family of Rev. Janet Howcroft of our church. Fredrick was a cousin who, at age 68, passed into the Light. He was a Vietnam veteran. He is survived by his loving wife Dina and his children. Our condolences are extended to the Howcroft family as they adjust to his passing.
We hare in the grief of the City of Boston at the passing of former Mayor Thomas Menino. The mayor was known to be a champion of the people and of diversity. His departure from this life, even though he had stepped down from his office will leave a void in the hearts of many. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
On Friday October 31, 2014, 6 pm Pacific Time, Pierre Claveloux 'Pete Pathfinder' Davis was taken across the veil. He was surrounded by loved ones, and went peacefully in his bed. On our most holy day, when the barrier between the Worlds was at its thinnest, and on the 35th anniversary of the founding of his life’s work, The Aquarian Tabernacle Church; Grandmother Hekate, Patron Goddess of the ATC Order came across and brought home with her one of her most devoted sons.
Founder of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church, Panegyria Magazine, Spiral Scouts, The Pagan Information Network, and Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary, Pete's contribution to Wicca, and Pagan rights can never be overstated. From prison ministries, to Veterans rights, and his ability to standardize our faith through the Government, Pete's legacy, and the freedoms enjoyed from his actions will be felt throughout the duration of Wicca on Earth.
Pete Pathfinder: Born on Ostara, 1937. Crossed into the Summerlands on Samhain, 2014.
Please hold your phone calls to ATC or the family until Nov. 2nd and give the family and church time to grieve. If you would like to post your condolences for the time being, please do so here.
