Thanks are due to the farms, and to all who attended: the clergy who led the prayers and to the talented, hard working ladies of our parish who put on a wonderful supper which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The commitment of all these people to ensure the success of the Rogation Sunday Service was exceptional and greatly appreciated. Heartfelt thanks to you all.
