- This event has passed.
On Sunday, May 15th, Chateau Chantal will host the interdenominational Blessing of the Blossoms service at 1:00pm.
Complimentary cherry pie, fruit, tea & coffee on hand after the ½ hr service.
No event ticket, charge or reservation needed to participate in the ceremony.
The Latin for blessing—benediction – derives from bene & dicere—i.e. to speak well thus, we speak well of blossoms this day. We tell a good story about nature, crops, our livelihood & 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 & grapes & sense that winter is done!
