The Diocesan Rogation Day is the second of our four new Diocesan all ages gatherings (the first being St. Nicholas Day, with Family Camp and the Summer Kite Festival coming later this year).
Saturday, April 25, 2015
Holy Trinity, Wyoming
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
What are Rogation Days?
The term is from the Latin rogatio, "asking." In England they were associated with the blessing of the fields at planting. The vicar "beat the bounds" of the parish, processing around the fields reciting psalms and the litany. In the United States they have been associated with rural life and with agriculture and fishing.
What is the Diocesan Rogation Day?
As a way for us to celebrate our connection to the season of spring, the environment, and our agricultural heritage, we can use this opportunity to come together as a diocese.
What will we be doing?
9:30 doors open
10:00 gathering, introductions and a brief message about Rogation Day
10:30 break into age groups for activities
children - an activity on the environment
youth - an outreach activity around the grounds of Holy Trinity (bring a rake and work gloves)
adults - a lesson and activity presented by the Bill Spaid, Canon to the Ordinary
12:00 lunch (with time for games and other activities)
Why should we go?
One of the biggest requests we get while traveling around the diocese is that people want more opportunities to come together and meet people in other parishes. Here's a wonderful opportunity to gather as we have fun and learn.
