Rogation Days are to honor God for His creation, and to pray for the land and sea and the gifts of labor, and for the needs of all. The traditional Rogation Days are the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday before Ascension Day. St. Martin in the Fields celebrated Rogation Sunday on May 8th this year since May 1st was Confirmation Sunday. We celebrated with a special service where we blessed the earth, sky, garden tools and our animals. Since not many of us have farm animals we blessed family pets and they were all well behaved.
If you haven’t been passed the Church in the past few weeks, take a drive by and you will see a statue of St. Martin in the landscaping on the street side. He has been hiding in the shrubbery for the last few years. He now has a place of honor in the new landscaping.
For those of you who missed out on our Pastie sale we will have another one soon.

The BOOK NOOK is full of new shelves. We are thinking of adding a little perusing spot for your convenience. The inventory has increased substantially in the last few months. We are diligently working on alphabetizing the categories to make it easier for our customers. Please bear with us.
