For Ogum the New Year starts on April 23rd.  Lent is over. Springtime is here. The Force of New Life, New Possibilities and New Victories whistles through the air like spinning sword blades.  Hear the train whistle sound!  Time to rise up with your sword in your hand and fight with all your might for victory on your path!!  PATACORÊ! OGUM OGUNHÊ 

Bring Red and White Flowers
and Iron or Steel objects
to get them charged up
on the Altar for Ogum!



Please wear white clothing, men in long pants, women in long skirts. We ask the women to wear white blouses that fully cover the shoulders and chest and to make sure that the clothing is not transparent. We will not be working with the Sacrament.

The Gira is a work of spiritual charity. There is no charge, however, we accept donations if you would like to contribute to our work. The donations that are collected go to the costs associated with renting the Salão for the Gira and for the materials, such as candles, etc. When we have an ogan (a drummer) it is customary to offer a part of the donations for his/her services.
