An outdoor service will be at 10:45 a.m. Sunday at Grace Episcopal Church, 20 Belvoir Ave. Adult classes are not meeting this week,
This Sunday marks Grace’s celebration of Rogation Day, when congregations traditionally ask God’s blessing on their agricultural holdings and the annual yields thereof. The opportunity will be taken at the 10:45 a.m. service to give thanks and rejoice in creation among the trees, flowers and the nearby garden-boxes that have been planted by parishioners and neighbors.
Bring lawn chairs for the outdoor service and come early to help set up. Some metal folding chairs will be available for use.
For hay fever sufferers or those who prefer a more traditional worship setting, the 8 a.m. service will remain indoors.
