Description summary:
The first paragraph reflects choices you made while founding the Burrow Church.

Church: DedicationSaint Paragraph
1: St CeciliaFlower petals and harpsichord hymns wafting on the wind. The scent of rosewater and incense. A lone chapel on a hill. The idyll you craft for your London audience is one of bucolic perfection.
