Messages from Dolores
Dear Magi, Supervisors and Students of SOL.
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the, literally, hundreds of good wishes, emails and postal cards you sent me on my 85th birthday. It has touched my heart so deeply and made me realise how strong the bond has become between us.
Since 1975 when I took over from Ernest Butler I have seen the School grow and expand and that is due to the tireless work so many of you have put into it. Next year at the spring Equinox it will be 40 years since I took the reins ( a very scary moment) and the time draws closer to hand them over again to younger hands.
This year marks my 50th year living and working in the Mysteries, for Michael and I entered the Inner Light in 1964.
In 1968 we took our first initiation and at that time I made the Unreserved Dedication. I repeat that dedication to you all now and promise that until I pass over those reins I will serve you and the Opener of the Ways with heart and soul.
At this time I would like to thank my husband Michael for the way in which he has supported both me and the school during these eventful years. Without his support, knowledge, and guardianship the SOL would not have been so successful.
My love and blessing to you all past, present and those who will come in the future.
Thank you, Dolores.
Yuletide Greetings at this time of the solstice and the turning of the year! Many thanks to all of you who have sent Christmas cards both actual and electronic. We have enjoyed them all and appreciate the thoughts and love expressed in them. We would like to thank the Supervisors and Lodge Magi and all SOL students for their hard work this year. The workshops and meetings have been wonderful and full of new ideas and realisations. We wish you all a Bright and Bountiful Christmas and a New Year full of promise for the future.
Our Love and Blessings go out to you all.
Dolores and Michael.
