Ludi Ceremony

Make an offering to Apollo during the Ludi Apollinares official ceremony

The central feature of the Ludi Apollinares is the ceremony honoring Apollo. This ceremony is performed on behalf of the entire community who identify as Romans today. This ceremony is performed by a recognized sacerdos (priest) of the Roman Republic. In this ceremony, Apollo will be petitioned to protect our community from harm and various threats and to elevate any burden of illness. 

The Ludi Apollinares was always about charity. In ancient times regular citizens helped fund the events through their own generosity. In this spirit, today we ask anyone who wishes to contribute an offering to do so. 

With the current COVID-19 outbreak we will donate 20% of all funds raised to Doctors Without Borders. The remaining funds will be used to fund this ludi ceremony and future activities of the Roman Republic.

We intend to record this ceremony live for fellow cultors may virtually attend regardless of their location.
