Sowing to Please the Spirit

Some 50 people -- mostly farmers -- recently celebrated a Rogation Mass on Dave Kestel's farm in Manhattan. Although this was the first event for this group, the celebration goes back centuries and was held for a variety of supplications, including the hope of a bountiful harvest. Officiating the Rogation Mass and the blessing of the seeds were the Rev. Mike McMahon, Deacon Pat Forsythe and Seminarian Josh White. Thanks to Pam Robbins for the photos.
