Rogation Sunday

The month of May is traditionally devoted to St. Mary, our patron. Throughout the month, we will be singing special hymns to the blessed mother. On Rogation Sunday, May 26, immediately following the 10am service, we will process into the churchyard to bless the grounds and plant a dogwood tree. Pious legend has it that the dogwood was used for the cross of Jesus, and upon his death, it changed into a small gnarled tree so that no cross could ever be made from it limbs again.
