On Sunday, May 14th, Chateau Chantal will host the non-denominational Blessing of the Blossoms service.

Complimentary cherry pie, fruit, tea & coffee on hand after the half hour service.

No event ticket, charge or reservation needed to participate in the ceremony.

BLESSING OF THE BLOSSOMS
SUNDAY MAY 14
AT CHATEAU CHANTAL 
(AN INTERDENOMINATIONAL EVENT)

 

The Latin for blessing—benediction – derives from bene and dicere—i.e. to speak well
Thus, we speak well of blossoms this day. We tell a good story about nature,
crops, our livelihood and the beauty of this wonderful place called Old Mission Peninsula.
What good speech do we have for this place? That’s our prayer. That’s our Blessing.
————————— ● ————————
The intent this day would speak - a ’Liturgy’. i.e., public work calling
attention to the marvel of Spring - an Easter of new life!...not merely symbolized
in an Easter bunny’s egg, but the reality of bursting buds, the blossoms of
Peninsula cherries, apples and grapes, and sense that winter is done!
