Gnostic Mass

The Gnostic Mass is the central rite of the OTO and it has been performed regularly in New Zealand for over 20 years.  The ceremony was written by Aleister Crowley in 1913 and it offers a uniquely Thelemic current, not least of all in that it celebrates the feminine aspect and includes a Priestess amongst its officers.  Members of the congregation typically describe the Mass as a beautiful experience, providing each of us the opportunity to change and re-create ourselves anew.

Members of the public are most welcome to attend.  For details contact the Lodge Master, by emailing kantharos@otonewzealand.org.nz.
