Special Event

Rogation Procession and Garden Blessing

 

Saturday, May 25
5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

 

Gathering in the courtyard garden at St. John’s, we’ll process to the NcNear Park Community Garden at 8th Street and G, behind the Cavanaugh Rec Center, stopping along the way to bless gardens and gardeners with prayers for well-being and fruitfulness.

The marking of “Rogation Days” before the Feast of the Ascension, with outdoor processions to pray for protection and prosperity for the Earth community and a bountiful harvest, is a tradition dating to the 5th century CE.

 

This is St. John’s fifth year observing the custom in Petaluma. If you are in the neighborhood, and would like a blessing for your garden, contact the church at 762-8872 or saintjohns.episcopalchurch@gmail.com.

Attention, Rogation Day Participants! As we at St. John's are offering delicious pizza following the celebration of life and abundant growing at McNear Garden on Saturday, please bring a little something to put on top of the pizzas. Olives, cheese, tomatoes, veggies, salami, anchovies, basil/fresh herbs, are all good candidates.

Taize

Is on break for the summer.
It will resume on September 6.

St. John’s has been hosting Taize services in Petaluma on the first Friday of the month since 2009. These candlelit services of contemplative chant and song offer participants an alternative worship experience to the traditional Sunday morning church service. The Taize service is ecumenical, providing a quiet space for spiritual communion with no preaching, no doctrine, just a calm environment for meditation and for song led by a cantor to the melodious tones of piano and cello.

A donation of $10 is requested, but not mandatory.
