Our History

The Coru Cathubodua is a Pagan Polytheist priesthood dedicated to the Morrígan in Her many forms. The Priesthood was founded in 2012 in response to a calling from the Morrígan to gather Her priests and begin the work of building a tradition of practice and an organization dedicated to Her. Many people within the Pagan and Polytheist communities have observed a rising and increasingly urgent sense of the presence of the Morrígan in the recent few years, and many have heard and responded to Her call. It was that same presence, urgency and calling that brought our Priesthood into being.

The initial call for the creation of our particular cultus and priesthood was received by three devotees, our first founders: Morpheus Ravenna, Brennos Agrocunos, and Rynn Fox. Stepping into that calling, these priests began gathering others called by the Morrígan, and the first membership of the Coru Cathubodua Priesthood came into being.

The Coru rapidly stepped into action, throwing ourselves into acts of service, providing devotional and ritual leadership, and all the while building our internal practice into a tradition of devotional cultus for the Great Queen. As a small but fiercely dedicated band of warrior-priests, we strive to make a positive impact on the world and bring works of service to our communities that reach beyond our size in membership. Primarily based in the San Francisco Bay Area, we also travel to bring service to communities abroad. We provide ritual, spiritual, and religious support to individuals on a private level, and ritual leadership at public gatherings, conferences, and rituals. We organize and facilitate teachings, classes, and pilgrimages in Celtic spirituality and Polytheist religious practice and we aid our communities in services such as organizing blood drives, fundraising, and medical and spiritual response teams for civil rights and social justice actions.

In our work, we recognize and value many allies within the Pagan, Polytheist, and Celtic Spirituality communities, without whom so much of what we do would not be possible. You can find links and contacts for friends and allies of the Priesthood in our Links page.

The Coru Cathubodua Priesthood extends a special thanks and honor to Rynn Fox, Founder Emeritus, who also served as our Chief from 2015-2016. As one of the original three founders of the Priesthood, our organization, mission, and tradition of practice have been profoundly shaped by her vision, skill, talent, and dedication. While Rynn has chosen to leave the Coru and move on, we remain grateful to her for the time of service she gave to this priesthood, and wish her well in all her future endeavors.
