St. Barnabas Anglican Church will observe Rogation Sunday and Ascension Day

Saturday, May 28, 2011

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.
