Fellowship of Isis Foundation Union Triad - ArchPriesthood Union
The ArchPriesthood Union
of the FOI Union Triad
On October 9, 2009, the ArchPriesthood Union was joined by the ArchDruid Union and Grand Commander Union to form the FOI Union Triad.
On January 28, 1999, Olivia completed drawing up a list of names for the ArchPriesthood Union. This Union of ArchPriests and ArchPriestesses was created by Lady Olivia Robertson, co-founder of the Fellowship of Isis in accordance with plans she had made with her late brother, FOI co-founder Lawrence Durdin-Robertson. At this time, the Foundation Headquarters decentralized the Fellowship of Isis, and the FOI Center Headquarters at Clonegal Castle became known as the Foundation Center. The ArchPriesthood Union members are the custodians of the precious legacy of the Fellowship of Isis. There can be no more than 31 members worldwide: the 1st position, that of Initiation is occupied by the late FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson; the 33rd position, that of Mystical Awakening, is occupied by the late FOI co-founder Lawrence Durdin-Robertson. This corresponds to the 32 physical rituals of Initiation and 1 of attainment of Divine Awareness without ritual on the Cosmic Web of the Universe which came to Olivia through divine inspiration. The Cosmic Web of the Universe is the basis for the 33 degrees of the FOI Spiral of the Adepti, Spiral of Alchemy and Magi Degree Initiation Systems.

Methods of Appointment and Operation
According to FOI co-founder Olivia Robertson the distribution of the ArchPriesthood Union was based in part on density of FOI communities in a particular geographical area - including number of active FOI centers and FOI related events, and/or work related activity for the FOI throughout the year.
New appointments to fill vacancies as they arise will be handled exactly the same way in the ArchPriesthood Union as in other two Foundation Unions, through geographical choice; in Europe, Japan, Africa, country by country. New appointments in the USA are state by state, according to the territory of the original appointment.
During the FOI Convocation at Isis Oasis, 2007, Lady Olivia drew up the following statement which reads: The Global Network of the Fellowship of Isis ArchPriesthood Union operates by Consensus of Members creating policies. New Appointments posted by Geographic Area, as preferred by: Olivia Robertson, Co-founder, F.O.I., the 8th day of October, 2007.
The Global Network of the Fellowship of Isis ArchPriesthood Union operates by Consensus of Members when creating policies or upholding the legacy of the Fellowship of Isis. This method of operation and appointment to fill any vacancies that may arise was created by Rt. Rev. Olivia Robertson, FOI Co-Founder, for all three FOI Foundation Unions. All FOI Foundation Triad Unions will operate in the same manner.
