The Foundations

The Covenant of the Goddess has been at the forefront of the fight to establish Wicca as a legitimate, legally-recognized religion in the United States. CoG members have testified in legal trials and advised government agencies, resulting in the legal protections we enjoy today.

The Covenant of the Goddess is an umbrella organization of cooperating autonomous Witchcraft covens and solitaries of all traditions, with the power to confer credentials on its qualified clergy. It fosters cooperation and mutual support among Witches.

About Hills and Rivers

Many of the Covenant’s activities are conducted at the regional level by Local Councils. There are 12 such Local Councils around the country, and Hills and Rivers  is  the newest Local Council of the Covenant of the Goddess. Write coghillsandrivers@gmail.com for more information, or visit www.cog.org.

Hills and Rivers is a Local Council of Covenant of the Goddess. Consisting of CoG Covens and Solitaries, we function as a resource to promote better understanding of Wicca and Witchcraft through sharing of our beliefs and philosophies, and that of the Covenant of the Goddess.
