It sure didn't feel like spring on the Litchfield Green on Sunday, but the cold, gray and windy weather didn't stop the annual Palm Sunday service conducted by the pastors of the First Congregational Church of Litchfield, St. Anthony of Padua Church and St. Michael's Church. The Revs. David Rockness, Robert F. Tucker and Bevan Stanley donned their long johns and led about 30 worshippers from the three churches in a brief service. BZ photos
