The name Rogation Sunday comes from the Latin word meaning to ask for. On this Sunday each year the congregations of Crickhowell and Tretower are hosted by the people of Cwmdu. We go out into the churchyard and around the village, giving thanks and praise to God for his wonderful creation, and we pray for our fields and crops, the livestock and the people of our valley.
We didn’t venture into the fields this year as there were lots of lambs around, so we prayed at the gate for the livestock. They were bemused!
This service also includes licensing the church wardens and PCCs for all three churches.
