Grace Episcopal Church on Sunday celebrated Rogation Sunday, which is generally celebrated in the Episcopal Church on the sixth Sunday of Easter (fifth Sunday after Easter).

Prayers are offered for God's blessing of crops and commerce. On Sunday, wooden Rogation Crosses were blessed and then given to those in attendance to take home and place in their garden or yard.
