Announcing the Inauguration of the Order of the Shining Helmet of Athena, as we go forward and continue honoring the wishes of FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson. This is the first project to be completed for the Fellowship of Isis under the guidance of the FOI Tri Unions. The index page for this new offering within the FOI is titled "Order of the Shining Helmet of Athena." You may read about the creation of this order in the Guidelines section, at the link provided on the Order of the Shining Helmet of Athena page. Work was completed on this order in July, 2015. We waited to make the announcement in the Season of Samhain, according to Olivia's original plan.

A new Oracle of the Season has been uploaded. This beautiful Oracle of the Goddess Isis through her Priestess, Olivia Robertson, was originally featured in Isian News issue no. 4 (Spring, 1977). It was replaced in the liturgy when an Oracle of the Goddess Sarasvati was published with the Evening Rite in "Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess." This oracle has not been featured in FOI offerings since 1977.
