Services at St. Barnabas Anglican Church in Shoreline will observe two special days on the Christian liturgical calendar this week.
May 29 is Rogation Sunday. The 10:30 am service will begin with a traditional “beat the bounds” procession around the parish grounds and prayers for its protection in the coming year.
The observance of Rogation Sunday – a time to invoke God’s mercy – dates to the early church. Its name comes from the Latin verb rogare, “to ask.”
Ascension Day on Thursday, June 2, will be observed at 6 pm with the liturgy that commemorates Jesus ascending into heaven 40 days after his resurrection.
St. Barnabas is at 2340 N 155th Street, Shoreline WA 98133. Visitors are welcome at all services.
