For Students

Imagine that you are in a sacred learning place – a classroom, a forest, a library, a home, a courtroom.

Imagine that you are in the presence of sacred teaching – a professor’s questions, an animal’s presence, the words or traditions of a people who may no longer walk this earth, a group of friends, a stranger.

Imagine that you hear a call to sacred service – a voice, an aptitude, a vision, a need, a yearning.

You may feel connected to those who have gone before, as well as those yet to be. Some from our past you can name, such as Hypatia and Julian Faithkeeper. Through your connections to our histories and traditions, our contemporary expressions, our communities, our world, and your own unique sense of calling, you seek preparation to serve those who are present now, and those who follow.

And to this we, the faculty, staff, students and supporters of Cherry Hill Seminary, say “Well come, and well met.” We marvel that we can, with pride and honor, greet you as you begin your graduate studies with us in Professional Pagan Ministry. Not long ago such a phrase – Professional Pagan Ministry – was unthinkable. Yet here we are engaged in exactly that!

At Cherry Hill Seminary, we strive for academic excellence, deep and broad Pagan spiritual formation, practical ministry skills, and community connection and support. We are committed to these things: for you, for ourselves, and for the gods – this is our sacred service.

May your sacred service be enhanced by your study at Cherry Hill Seminary.
