Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Vespers Service

To celebrate the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, on this week Saturday, May 31, at 7 p.m., Saint Giles’ Episcopal Church will be offering an Anglo-Orthodox Vespers service in the SMC Chapel (in the side Brother's Chapel). The name ‘vespers’ comes from the Greek word espera and the Latin word vesper, meaning ‘evening.’ In the Anglican tradition this service is often referred to as Evening Prayer or Evensong.

Rogation Sunday at Saint Giles - Blessing the Land & Crops

Rogation Sunday is the day when the Church has traditionally offered prayer for God’s blessings on the fruits of the earth and the labors of those who produce our food. The word “rogation” is from the Latin rogare, “to ask.” Historically, the Rogation Days (the three days before Ascension Day) were a period of fasting and abstinence, beseeching God’s blessing on the crops for a bountiful harvest.
