There was standing room only at St John’s in Featherston as over 200 people turned out to farewell Archdeacon May Croft from the Parish of South Wairarapa on Sunday. May officiated at her farewell service, assisted by Reverend Pat Olds who has been appointed as Interim Priest in Charge in the parish.
All of May’s family were there to support her, and her children James and Hannah gave lovely speeches in honour of their mum. A lunch at St Andrew’s, Martinborough following the service was also very well attended. We all wish May and Peter the best in their retirement. However, May will be continuing as Archdeacon for the Wairarapa until the end of the year.
