One project I am exceptionally proud of being a part of. All proceeds go behind the walls and to help those incarcerated continue their studies.
Steel Bars, Sacred Waters: Celtic Paganism for Prisoners
Authored by Heather Awen, Rev Donna Donovan, Brigantici filius, Erynn Rowan Laurie, Hester Butler-Ehle, Eddie Marsson, Emma Restall Orr, Armi Dee
An “all-in-one” pan-Celtic polytheist resource of cosmology, deities, virtues, history, rituals, meditations, magic and the future of Celtic Paganism, rooted in scholarly research.
One of only three full-size books for incarcerated Pagans, Steel Bars, Sacred Waters also fulfills the need for a historically accurate guide to ancient Celtic religions that many have sought.

Without further delay, we have a major announcement to make. With the addition of our latest volunteer, and expansion in our onsite service areas, Appalachian Pagan Ministry has made some organizational structural changes.
First, we want to all welcome Teresa Honeywell-Carris to the APM team! Teresa is our man on the ground in Arizona and will also be adding the surrounding states. Teresa is our SW Regional Director. Stay tuned for all the udpated info on our website.
Mallory Brooks is now our NW Regional Director, handling Idaho now and starting Oregon soon, as well as surrounding states.
Donna Donovan is now officially Executive Director, with Teresa Galloway as Program/Development Director, and Shannon Hansen as HR/Volunteer Director. Donna, Teresa, and Shannon will still be focused on servicing Ohio, KY, WV, and other areas as needed. Angie Fawn, Kelyla Spicer, and Lady Althaea are still volunteering with correspondence courses as needed, and Ciel Luciole is just awaiting process to jump in with Ohio facilities.
This is an exciting time for us at Appalachian Pagan Ministry, as we are broadening our reach, in person and via correspondence, helping to facilitate religious services for our fellow pagans currently incarcerated around the country!

As 2018 comes to a close soon, Appalachian Pagan Ministry continues to grow in their service. On November 20th, we will be presenting at Pickaway Correctional and continuing monthly service after that. In December we will be heading back to London Correctional, as well as starting at Southeastern Correctional in Lancaster. As of today, we are monthly serving the following facilities in Ohio: Mansfield Correctional. Allen-Oakwood Correctional, NCCC, Chillicothe Correctional. Warren Correctional. Pickaway Correctional. London Correctional, Grafton Correctional, Dayton Correctional, SCI, and working to continue at OSP and SOCF, as well as starting at Toledo Correctional. These are exciting times for the growth of pagan services behind the walls in Ohio, as well as in other states.
Mallory continues her work in Idaho, and Theresa her work in Arizona. With expansion in services, comes expansion in expenses. Please view our "How You Can Help" page to see how you, too, can help with providing the much needed services to our fellow pagans currently incarcerated.
