Cressida Pryor, Olivia Robertson's Successor
From Olivia Robertson
July 25, 2011
Members' Shrine, Clonegal Castle
From Olivia Robertson:
I am so happy that my niece Cressida Pryor is my successor in the spiritual and ethical work of the Fellowship of Isis. We need one single centre for registration of membership and centres (Lyceums, Iseums, Priories and Groves) which should be Clonegal Castle. Cressida has offered to be the custodian of the register. New members may register with her and must sign that they agree to the Manifesto. No member has the right to control another. There are no subscription fees, membership will always continue to be free. I feel my brother is with me as the Fellowship of Isis goes back to basics.
Cressida is the niece of my brother Lawrence Durdin-Robertson and Pamela Durdin-Robertson.
From Cressida Pryor:
Registration to the Fellowship of Isis, and registration of centres may be made via my email. All must agree to the Manifesto. Please put ‘FOI’ in the title bar of any emails.
Please note: As of March 2015, Eimear Burke and Alison Shelly (of the Circle of Brigid) are responsible for registering new centers and titles, which are archived at the FOI Foundation Center. This is overseen by Cressida Pryor. Send new registrations to this email address: email@example.com

Past correspondence - included for historical archival purposes:
"Cressida only needs people to register their centres. This creates a central directory so she can direct people to groups in a particular area who wish to acquire information on centres and their courses. So at the moment we do not need to send lists of all our ordainees and so on, just our centres's details to be registered. New members not already aligned to any groups may apply via Cressida too." (July 27, 2011)
Here is a declaration I know you will approve of regarding Cressida as my successor:
I Olivia Robertson am inspired by Isis at Opet 23rd July 2011 to declare that my niece the Rev Cressida Pryor our priestess is my successor to my spiritual work for the Fellowship of Isis.
We need a world centre to coordinate the names and commitment to the manifesto of all our centres throughout the World at the unifying address of the Foundation Centre Clonegal Ireland. The register will be in the care of Cressida Pryor on her email address.
Signed: Olivia Robertson
From Cressida Pryor:
I Cressida Pryor commit myself to continue the spiritual work and path of the FOI as started by my Aunt Olivia, Uncle Derry and Aunt Bobby. I feel honoured and delighted to pick up the baton of this challenge and I know I have huge footsteps to fill. The central tenets of the FOI manifesto will be a crucial obligation for all centres to uphold. This will allow for democratic, equal and spiritual dignity for all members. Registration will remain within the foundation centre under the care of myself. New centres and members need now to apply to the FOI Central Registry on my email address. A requirement of registration is to agree to the ideals and ethics of the manifesto.
Signed Cressida Pryor.
Thank you Minette it is to you we turn to spread this exciting news to all global sites, Dina (sic) and any one else you think should know; including family! Registration to the Fellowship of Isis, and registration of centres may be made via my email. All must agree to the Manifesto. Please put 'FOI' in the title bar of any emails. With blessings from both of us. Olivia and Cressida.
From Minette Quick on August 23, 2011:
"I have had a couple of queries about should existing centres register with Cressida. Olivia says that isn't necessary, just new centres, which will keep it simple."
