Rogation: A Longer Procession

Rogation Sunday is the Sunday before Ascension Day. In this activity, the congregation processes around several prayer stations, in the churchyard as well as the church, if the weather permits.


  1. Reading: John 14.15-21 - Jesus promises the Holy Spirit
  2. The children are invited to the front. The leader explains the history and meaning of Rogation.
  3. The congregation processes around pre-marked prayer stations, which symbolise aspects of their parish or places with which the parish has links.
  4. If you take a photograph at every prayer station then afterwards you can make a lovely display of all the different aspects of your parish life, acted out by the congregation.
