With a near to capacity church on Sunday morning, Rev Jono was farewelled by his friends, parishioners and colleagues. Rev Jono has been called to minister in another place, and will be moving to the Anglican Parish of Mudgee. Rev Jono arrived here in November 2010, so has been our local minister now for some 6 years, with his ministry including Woodstock, Eugowra, Canowindra, Cudal and Cranbury. Rev Jono was presented with a beautiful painting by David Isbester of one of his favourite watering holes, The Junction Hotel where a lot of his ministry was conducted for those in need.
Following the service a lovely two course lunch was held at the Services Club with around 60 people attending. The wishing well was signed by all those in attendance and many of those attending spoke about their involvement with Rev Jono and how he had supported them in their time of need. Rev Jono will be missed by all in the parish and we look forward to welcoming the new minister when he is commissioned.
