Rogation Sunday - 29th April 2018

Beat the Bounds
and Bring Your Hounds!

HoundRogation days are days of prayerful supplication before God. In years gone by, it was common for the Church to gather on Rogation Days to ask God to bless the crops being sown, to send rain and to give a good harvest later in the year. Often prayers would be said as the church processed around the boundary lines of the parish.

We will be celebrating Rogation Day on Sunday 29th April 2018 by beating the bounds - the traditional walking of the parish boundary - consisting of a three mile walk around Sedgehill. Dogs are very welcome - the more the merrier (and louder!). The walk will be suitable for small children and buggies.

We will meet at St Catherine's Church, Sedgehill, at 9.00 am with the aim to start the walk at 9.15 am. The walk will be followed by the Rogation Eucharist at 10.30 am at St Catherine's Church. The speaker will be Richard Lees from the Goa Anglican Centre. Refreshments will be served after the service.

All are most welcome.
