Covenant Of Clans
- The Sacred Well Congregation shall be organized into Local Congregations and titled Clans as defined by the usage of antiquity. That is, we are a number of kindred groups claiming common ancestry from the Old Ones, united by common interest, common cause, and common characteristics, in Perfect Trust and in Perfect Love.
- Every Clan within the Congregation, regardless of size, location, or leadership, shall be an Equal among Equals, and shall be, in fact and in deed, a Local Church as defined by common usage, and Article 4 of the Constitution of the Sacred Well Congregation. Yára Silmárilde, for purposes of Lineage and recognition by temporal authorities, powers and principalities, shall be designated the executive or Mother Clan, also known as the Main Congregation, and shall be presided over by the International Executive Council of Clerics of the Congregation; She shall cause Charters to issue to the several Clans to in the name of the Sacred Well Congregation. No dogma shall promulgate, nor shall the Main Congregation levy decrees save through Covenants issuing from the International Executive Council. The several Clans shall be fettered to the Main Congregation only by the Law of Love and the Five Tenets of the Sacred Well Congregation.
- Every Clan shall be led by one or more Ordained Clerics of the Sacred Well Congregation who shall be responsible for the Clan in all matters of Spirit and of Weal. Every Ordained Cleric shall have the right to request a Charter for a Clan to issue in the name of, and with Charge and Blessing from the Sacred Well Congregation. A Charter, once issued to an Ordained Cleric, shall be perpetual and immutable. The Charter may be passed by the receiving Cleric to another Cleric ordained by the Sacred Well Congregation with the Sanction of the International Executive Council, or may be returned to the Mother Clan. A Charter may be withdrawn by the Mother Clan only for reasons of deliberate violation of the Tenets or Covenants, and then only with the consent of a majority of the International Executive Council.
