Fi­nal ser­vice for church’s rec­tor

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

There was a fond farewell at St Mar­garet’s Epis­co­pal Church in New Gal­loway as the Rev­erend John Repath took his last ser­vice be­fore his re­ti­ral as rec­tor after 21 years.

As well as the usual con­gre­ga­tion, many other friends at­tended – mak­ing it an ex­tra-spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

Drinks and canapés pro­vided by the ladies’ guild fol­lowed with a pre­sen­ta­tion on be­half of the con­gre­ga­tion by long- time mem­ber Richard Agnew.

Rev Repath and his wife Jenny are mov­ing to Here­ford­shire to be nearer their fam­ily.

He said: “We will al­ways re­mem­ber the many years we have en­joyed here. It has been a priv­i­lege to have served here with such a loyal and faith­ful con­gre­ga­tion”.

Dalry Com­mu­nity Coun­cil chair­man Ni­co­lette Wise said: “They take with them the good wishes of all.”
