For more than a thousand years, the Nativity of St. John the Baptist (better known as Midsummer's Day) was a high festival on the calendar, celebrating the glories of creation and the promise of redemption on this longest day of the year. Bonfires were burned, St. John's Wort harvested, and couples and cattle alike were blessed.

The public is invited to attend this special service.
