West Rasen

Rogation Sunday at West Rasen  2021

 

Rogation Sunday is the oldest of the agricultural themed Church services dating back to the 5 th century. The word rogation comes from the Latin verb rogare meaning ‘to ask'. At a time when almost everyone would have made their living in some way from the land, Rogation Sunday was a day when the people asked for God's blessing of the harvest, earth, sea and for protection from natural disaster. Historically, the parish priest and people would have walked the parish boundary blessing the crops and animals as they went.  

Led by Peter Cook, from the Middle Rasen Ministry Team, parishioners from West Rasen and other local villages celebrated Rogation Sunday at All Saints Church, West Rasen on Sunday 2nd May. Due to the pandemic this was the first service held at All Saints since the carol service in December 2019. Parts of the Rogation Service took place in the 11th century Church with gospel readings and prayers. Honouring the tradition of beating the bounds part of the service was said outside at the River Rase, in sight of a wheat field and also at the heritage centre. The service remains a highlight in the Church year when we are reminded to reflect on the natural wonders of the environment and all life, reminding ourselves that we are stewards of creation.
