Nominations are over: now, the Patron selection election!

The word "VOTE", with a pentagram and stars and stripes pattern.

This year, we have ten contenders for Gaia Community’s Patron of the Year title. They are, in alphabetical order:

  • Athena
  • Caffeina
  • Columbia
  • Ganesha
  • The Green Man
  • Horus
  • Kwan Yin
  • Ostara
  • Scathách
  • Venus

Now, we need to narrow the field to three contenders. We’ll do that by ranked-choice vote. All members of Gaia Community (whether currently active or not) can fill out an online ballot; members and visitors may fill out a paper ballot at any Sunday service. The election ends 4/28, following our Beltane ritual. All ballots must be turned in by that time. Only one ballot per person will count, so please vote in-person or online, but not both. Results will be tallied and announced on 4/28, so stay tuned!

Who Will Be Gaia Community’s New Patron?

Freya, Gaia’s 2018-2019 annual patron.

Each year, Gaia Community selects a new patron power to study, honor, and work with for 12 months. We start by taking nominations for potential patrons. You can nominate a power that you think would be good for the community with our handy form, here. Nominations must be received by March 17 to be considered. Final selection of the patron will be in July — stay tuned for more information about the process.
