Rogation Sunday - 14th May 2017

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 14th May 2017 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!).

We will meet at Lower House Farm, Sedgehill, SP7 9JF, at 9.00 am and at 9.15 am, we will set off. The walk will be 'buggy friendly' and 'dog friendly' so that all may manage it.

The walk will be followed by the Rogation Eucharist at 10.30 am, in the barn at Lower House Farm. Refreshments will be served after the service.

All are most welcome.
