Join us at Will Rogers Gardens to give thanks to and for colorful flowers and fragrant herbs and those hard working Oklahoma bees!
In Eastern Christian tadition it's customary to bless Flowers, Herbs, & Bees in St Mary's honor on Aug 15 her primary Feast day.
We decided why don't we invite our friends from other faiths and no faith to give thanks for these simple things with us.
Everyone is welcome reagardless of faith backgound. Let's come together for just an hour or less in this beatiful public garden and bless the makers of honey and the fragrant herbs and flowers that stimulate our senses.
If you wish, bring fresh flowers and herbs to be blessed so you can take the blessing home with you or to a friend who needs a blessing from you.
There willl be not preaching or «church service» just a few prayers experssing our graditude. Come early and enjoy the garden or maybe you could only stay for 10 minutes. The gathering will be unprogramed and informal. It's main purpose is to bring us together and build community.
Contact Fr. Corey if you would like to offer a blessing or prayer to the flowers and bees and herbs in your faith traditions style. Or even cohost the event with Holy Spirit Church.
Let's take a little time and smell the roses and say thank you to them as well as our pollenators and honey makers!
