Ceremonies

It is Reverend Goddess Charmaine's belief that life is a celebration!

ceremony1Ceremonies are important in marking important moments in our lives and have existed since time immemorial. They should proceed with insight and wisdom, love and sharing; creating cherished memories that will nourish the soul long after the event has concluded. Ceremonies presided over by Reverend Goddess Charmaine are carefully constructed with the individual or groups emotional, spiritual, and artistic concerns in mind.

Wedding, Commitment, and Other Spirit-Bonding Ceremonies

According to Reverend Goddess Charmaine, in any ceremony that is a consecration of a relationship, "The most important ingredient is LOVE."

All ceremonies are unique, and created with the couple, keeping their spirit and soul in mind.

Spiritual ceremonies are open to all races, religions and sexualities.

An interfaith ceremony performed by Reverend Charmaine (an ordained interfaith minister) is especially appropriate for couples coming from different religious backgrounds desiring special rituals performed, and also for those who are not associated with a particular church or minister.

Ceremonies performed by Reverend Goddess Charmaine are ideal for the spiritually advanced who want an unconventional service.

Again, the most important ingredient is LOVE.

Baptisms and Other Birth Celebrations

The Rev. Goddess Charmaine considers every new life to be a miracle: sacred, precious, and something to be celebrated.

Rev. Charmaine offers services which are prepared according to the family's particular spirituality or faith.

Many of these ceremonies are performed using holy water or anointment oils.

Upon completion of the ceremony, a certificate is presented to commemorate the blessing of the newborn child.

Dear God,

Send Your angels to every person at my workplace, and to every person coming to my workplace today and forever.
If I am tempted to judge or criticize anyone, please heal me of my limited vision.
May I see only the truth.
May I work from integrity and excellence and the full force of your power within me and use it to benefit this world.
May my presence at work be a blessing to others and myself.
Thank you, Lord, for showing me the way, now and forever.

Thank you.
