26 May 2019 – SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER – Rogation Sunday

Alleluia!  Christ is risen!

He is risen indeed!  Alleluia!


please remember to keep the last five minutes before the services, and especially the time during the administration of Holy Communion,

for quiet prayer and reflection (a bell will be rung before the main service at Sherburn)



Welcome on this Rogation Sunday, when, weather permitting, we will symbolically 'beat the bounds' of the parish at various points in the churchyard.  This is an ancient ceremony when traditionally prayers are said for the growing crops, and the bounds of the parish are 'beaten' so that all should know the extent of their parish.


ALSO, a special welcome to Harley Joshua Welsh being baptised at Micklefield, Eliza Patricia Grace Udall-James being baptised at Sherburn, and Matilda Betty May Dever being baptised at Saxton, and to all their families and friends.
