Lise Christofferson of Pueblo, Colorado is the second person to complete our Clergy Training Program and she is the first female to be ordained through this program. Here is a little bit about Lise:
Hello, I’m Lise Christofferson and I am a Gythia ordained by the Asatru Community. I live in Pueblo, Colorado, and you can reach me through TAC or through my page on Witchvox.com. I preform weddings, funerals, handfastings, and age rituals such as naming ceremonies, first tooth, coming of age, saging and croning.
I believe in bringing the gods, goddesses, ancestors and spirits back into our celebrations and our spirituality into our daily lives. I regularly preform ritual and functions in my area and I am always reaching out to the greater Pagan community, as well.
I truly believe in the spiritual path of Asatru, and in TAC’s commitment to its growth through education and bringing people together. There is a place for everyone at the spiritual table of Asatru.
Joseph Marrero of Opp, Alabama is also joining our Clergy Family. Joseph recently completed our Direct Ordination Program. Here is a little bit about Joe:
