Blessing of the Seersucker!

As The Rev. John Beddingfield, rector All Souls Memorial Episcopal Church, wrote in the All Souls Weekly: "Since this is also the first Sunday after Memorial Day, at All Souls, we also take a lighter approach to giving thanks for the material world and celebrate the beginning of summer with our Third Annual Blessing of the Seersucker. This brief service is our take on the "kirking" or blessing of the tartans, celebrated by Washington National Cathedral, the City of Alexandria, VA, and others. While tartans may represent ancestral links for some, we think that seersucker might better represent our clan, especially as we struggle through a hot D.C. summer and still try to look nice."
