A busy hoe is a happy hoe
What we've been up to
Yule Blót 2022
Sister Marjorie is honored to have been invited to be apart of The Way of Fire and Ice online Blót for Yule. She held space with many amazing individuals who honored the land, their ancestors and the divine.
Indigenous ancestors were honored. Mental health was talked about and given safe space. Injustices were noted and called out into the light.
There were honors given and toasts made to the Queer folks that have made their mark on community and the Queer folks who throughout history were erased or villafied for simply existing. Queer erasure in history and mythology is unfortunately very common and it's important we all work to remember the many Queer folks who paved the way to where we are now.
Divination was shared and ideas were exchanged. Everyone was welcoming and supportive of each other.
Thank you Ryan Smith for hosting and thank you to all the folks who directed the Blót and made sure everyone was heard and that it remained a safe space. This Sister felt right at home! Thank you for inviting this Sister into your sacred space.
A CHWA Christmas!
Yall, Sister Marjorie Arcana hung out with the CHWA-Cottage Hills Wrestling Alliance crew today and they are completely amazing! The show they put on was spectacular tonight and the SOIL Sisters were honored to have been invited.
Sister Marjorie Arcana started out her time at the event by handing out candy to the attendees, talking with some really amazing folks and mingling with some of the wrestlers. It literally only took the thought of hot sweaty men to get Sister Marjorie out to Illinois and guess what? SHE DIDNT GET STUCK IN A BATHROOM STALL THIS TIME!
As she watched the matches she heard some really emotional speeches about why CHWA means so much to the people who participate, there were a couple times it got emotional and it really reminded Sister Marjorie about how she felt about the SOIL Sisters, she really respects their passion and their mission. She heard of a mothers love for her son who is following in his fathers foot steps, the testimony of a recovering person, and the love and respect they all had for each other. That was family.
She even got kissed on the cheek by a champion! Mr. Jeremy Lightfoot who won the TLC Match of the night! However, Sister Marjorie is married to the Lord, or five of them she lost count. So unless they can suplex a God (Or five, maybe more) Like Kratos then Sister Marjorie stays a dirty hoe (nun). Your dirty hoe nun is in another castle.
Congratulations on your win and to the CHWA team for putting on such a spectacular show!
The Soil Sisters and Queermas go to together like Santas "Ho Ho Ho!" And well you know, hoes.
Two things were made very clear tonight, when Sister Mothra comes to play she slays and wins a rainbow holiday tree and Sister Salacious Scuttlebutt is coming for everyone's veil in House SOIL rocking her giant pearl necklace! We knew she was a natural.
Sister Mothra and Sister Scuttles worked to spread holiday cheer amongst the youth at Queermas and were honored to do so. Holidays can be hard for youth and adult alike and when told we could help spread joy and warmth to the youth at Queermas. Sister Mothra and Sister Scuttles with the help of friends, jumped at the chance to serve community holiday cheer and warmth.
Sister Salacious Scuttlebutt even kicked off the event with a very Queer and sacred blessing letting all who attended know they were loved and adored. Sister Scuttles is turning out to be a powerhouse of a Sister!
Sister Mothra spread her wings and spread glitter and joy around the room. Slaying in Trivia and having fun with the folks and a giant inflatable unicorn. She helped keep safe space for the youth at the event and made sure everyone had a great time in a safe space made just for everyone who attended Queermas.
From the House of SOIL to you and yours we want to wish you,
Happy Holidays and may you be blessed with love and joy!
Sister Salacious Scuttlebutt was busy in the kitchen today!
They spent their time preparing soul food for the faculty, students and volunteers at Newman making sure their spirits were just as full as their stomachs!
Sister Scuttles fed 30 folks and did so with help from a former School Sister of Notre Dame Sister "Oma" Einig!
You can find Sister Scuttles doing the lords work with Newman when not out with the SOIL Sisters. They help prepare meals for folks every Thursday after mass at 5:15pm, and also perform other amazing works of charity and service to help out their religious community and Church!
Sister Marjorie Arcana invaded Toyman Toy Show today and met some wonderful people! She floated through the halls, almost got stuck in a bathroom stall and fought desperately to leave said stall. (Smallest bathroom ever.)
Thankfully she didn't lose any sequins and blessed as many folks as she could!
The reason Sister Marjorie manifested and went out to a Toy show today is because there's been a recent uptick in violence and hatred towards the Queer community. There's a lot of fear and even she felt that fear.
She decided in spite of being scared its important that people see her, that families see her so she can engage them and let them know our community isn't the monster hiding in the closet waiting to hurt people and children.
Representation matters. She made sure to let EVERYONE she came across know they are safe and loved and deserve to feel joy from children with their families all the way up to adults. Even one chihuahua.
Things are hard and scary right now. The SOIL Sisters are committed to combating that hatred with joy and the constant reminder that you are loved as you are and should and deserve to take up space in this world.
As long as Sister Marjorie doesn't get stuck in a bathroom stall again. There won't be any delays in that mission or message.
The SOIL Sisters walked the runway through the streets during the Lights Fantastic Parade! Sister Salacious Scuttlebutt was looking fab all painted up for a night on the town! They rocked their rainbow peace sign and served wise wizard all night long! Sister Mothra Stewart was serving looks while wearing enough lights to light up the parade! With her cute glowing goggles and adorable lit fashion, she wasn’t just chasing lights she was the light! Sister Fagatha Hardness led the Sisters in the parade spreading glittery blessings as they sashayed through the streets, when she wasn’t reflecting Mothra’s lights into oncoming traffic with her enormous (We are jealous cant you tell.) jeweled earrings she was also serving looks showing herself as a regal purple Sister goddess.
Overall, the SOIL Sisters had an amazing time and love their community, thank you for allowing us to spread our love and glitter all over the streets of Carbondale.
World AIDS Day
December 1st is World AIDS Day. It's important that we take today to remember our ancestors who have passed from the virus and hug close those who are living with it today.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence consider today to be of great importance because alot of our work centers on educating about HIV/AIDS and comforting those who live with the stigma of HIV/AIDS.
Take some time today to educate yourself, remember those we have lost and comfort those still here.
