The Covenant

of the Holy Madonnas

Covenant of Indulgence

 

Mission - The Covenant of the Holy Madonnas exists to bring humor and laughter to the Central Coast of California.  By bringing knowledge and silliness to our community we seek to strengthen the bonds of each community - be they LGBT+, Ally, or other, we seek to bring laughter to everyone.

Incorporation - At this time, The Covenant of the Holy Madonnas seeks to not Incorporate.  For that reason, our Bylaws have been shortened into this Covenant to still bring structure, but in a way that makes The Covenant more accessible to not only the San Luis Obispo, but reach to Santa Barbara, Monterey, and Fresno Counties.

Voting Membership - It will be required to participate in a vote, that the member has attended the last two membership meetings.

Sabbatical - If any member has missed, or not attended 3 consecutive meetings, they will be placed on Sabbatical.  To remove themselves from Sabbatical, they’ll need to attend 2 consecutive meetings.  There is no penalty to Sabbatical, besides not being included in votes.

Entry - Without incorporation, we have a sleeker entry into the Covenant than most houses would see.  Keeping with rank, but making it accessible to spread the calling through our smaller communities that make recruiting easier since we wont have the population that some of the bigger houses have to pull from.

  • Aspirant - We will be removing the Aspirant Rank.
  • Postulant - We will be keeping the Postulant Level.  Clothing - Postulants are allowed to wear Pill Box Habit, with no veil.  Can do “drag makeup” but will refrain from White Face.  To raise up to Novice, a Postulant will been to attend 3 membership meetings, and attend 3 manifestations in full costume.
  • Novice - We will be keeping the Novice level.  Novice Sisters will be able to add a “Pope” facade to their Habit, the facade will be kept white, but can be adorned.  Novice Sisters will be adorned with the Signature Halo of the Covenant.  Novice Sisters can wear both white face, and full drag makeup.  Novices will wear only White Veils. To Elevate from Novice Sister, a Novice Sister must have completed a Novice Project.  The Novice Project will need to take a minimum of 9 hours to put together, and elevation will be delivered at the culmination of project.  The novice will need to attend 6 meetings.
  • Fully Professed (Or "Mission Sister" if elevated before Mission becomes House) - We will be keeping the Fully Professed level.  Fully Professed Sisters will elevate their habit to what is currently being referred to as the “Pilgrim Habit.”  They will be given a Black Veil upon their elevation, and can wear any color veil during informal manifestations.  A Fully Professed Sister will also receive a Scapular.  Our Scapular will be an open front, tied at the neck, Scapular.

Informal Attire - A Sister can wear anything during Informal attire, though it is recommended to be some kind of “Wedding” style attire.  Think Madonna in the 80’s.

Formal - Our formal attire will be all white, excluding a black veil for fully professed sisters.  The white attire must read as “Wedding dress” in some way.
