This morning, the first Sunday in June, was our Family Service. We celebrated Pentecost, but also took the opportunity to have our Rogation Walk. As the boundaries of our Parish stretch from Selsey up to Donnington and over to Birdham  we modify our walk to the environs of the Church! We started in the Church, with our notices,and an opening hymn and prayer. We then walked, first to the barn in Church Farm Lane, then to the new extension of the grave yard, which is adjacent to Mr Spiby's land, where some calves came to see us. We then walked down to Russetts where Mr Harland's fish were blessed, into the garden of Scantlands, and finally into the Fete field thanks to Mr Torrance, where Jane Robinson's horses were grazing. At each stop we had a reading from Genesis, a prayer and a verse of All things Bright and Beautiful. We walked through the Vicarage drive, past our nearly completed new building to the South door of the Church for our final hymn and prayers. Rogation comes from the Latin 'Rogere'  to ask, and our prayers for a successful harvest are made on this day. Many thanks to all who took part, who allowed access to their land, or animals, and to Miss Beryl Rodd who accompanied us on the Piano.
