Third Degree Initiates in the Coven of the Catta

Temple in Dr Santee’s basement 1970

The Coven of the Catta comes from several older lineages. The most direct is from Dame Sybil Leek of the Coven of the Horsa of the New Forest in England, which came from the Coven de la Dragon Rouge in SE France. Lady Sybil Leek initiated Lord Merlin and Lady Phoebe Athene Nimue in 1967 and they founded the Coven of the Catta in northern Pennsylvania. The other lineages come through Lord Merlin, aka Dr Frederick LaMotte Santee, who received initiations into Covens and Occult groups in England, France, Germany, Italy and North Africa. Our founders have all passed on. Lady Phoebe initiated me, Shawnus, into my three degrees in the early 1980s and with Lady Alsace I continue to carry on the Coven lineages.

In order of initiation the following witches are officially Third Degree High Priestesses and Priests of the Coven of the Catta:

Shawnus Merlin Belarion – Pennsylvania

Lady Alsace Isa Brie – Pennsylvania

Lady Augur Nagi Astarte – Florida

Lady Tanith Athene Ulf-Vana – North Carolina

Lady Ember Willow Hawk – Pennsylvania

There are two couples, PH/BH, and KF/SF, who were initiated back in the 1980s-1990s but as far as I am aware they are not actively practicing.
