MACKVILLE - Area farmers are looking toward the upcoming season with a day of thanks and prayer.
The Green Bay Catholic Diocese hosted its Rural Life Day mass at St. Edward Parish in Mackville Thursday.
Bishop David Ricken led the celebration. He thanked the farmers for their hard work and dedication to the land. He also prayed for a fruitful and safe season.
Bishop Ricken says the mass gives thanks not only to farmers, but also to the earth.
"People go to the store and think that's where milk comes from and all the foods that they get. But the foods are actually from the earth and this is a reminder to all of us of the connection of the food that we take for granted as straight from the earth. And we want to thank God for that gift," said Most Rev. David Ricken.
Thursday's celebration also included a blessing of the animals and farming equipment.
