Rogation Sunday Scheduled May 8 At St. Martin’s

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 will celebrate Rogation Sunday on May 8th this year since May 1st is Confirmation Sunday. We will celebrate Rogation Sunday with a special service where we will bless the earth, sky, garden tools and our animals. Since not many of us have farm animals we will bless your family pets. So bring them to church on May 8th at 10 a. m. All kinds are welcome. The Holy Eucharist will be in the Common Room.

St. Martin in the Fields second Meatloaf dinner was a success. We were concerned we might have either too little or too much food, but we had just the right amount! Thanks to all who supported our fundraiser and to all those who helped.

For those of you who missed out on our Pastie sale we will have another one soon.

Helping others in need is part of St. Martin in the Fields outreach program. This month we are collecting canned vegetables for the food bank at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Your items can be dropped off at the Church on Sunday morning or at Barry’s Floral Shop, 176 S. Mountain Blvd.

The BOOK NOOK will have its May sale on the 14th from 10 am to 2 pm. Our 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.

The Common Room, located in the back of the Church is available for use by not-for-profit groups. There is a 40” monitor with either VGA or HDMI input, guest wireless access for up to 10 users at a time, and a blue tooth enable stereo allowing you to play music from your phone or other wireless device. There is on site parking, seating for up to 75 people, has a handicap accessible entrance. For more information contact Don Herres at 570-560-0015.
