Schools’ Services of Harvest Thanksgiving

Oh taste and see that the Lord is good!


This week yKEA hosted two Schools’ Services of Harvest Thanksgiving. The first took place in Sligo Cathedral and was attended by 300 pupils from national school across Elphin and Ardagh. The second, which was attended by more than 450 school children, took place in Kilmore Cathedral.

The yKEA team were joined by members of Operation Mobilisation for a service of prayer, praise, singing, dancing and puppetry. We were reminded that when we are thankful for God’s blessings we are not just thankful for something that He has given us but for something that He has made. A memory verse was taught encouraging us to ‘taste and see that the Lord is good’ (Psalm 34.8) – wonderful encouragement as we celebrate the harvest and thank God for all his love and goodness to us.
