Biography contributed by Sharyn Roberts

His cheerful disposition and manly qualities make the Rev. C. W. T. Rogers, vicar of St. Michael's Church of England, North Carlton, eminently suited for the position of chaplain with the Australian forces abroad.
He expects to leave for the front at an early date, and those who nave followed his career closely and have been helped by his ministry look forward to hearing of great spiritual gains as a result of his work abroad.
Mr Rogers is a man with a message for men, but while he is an elective preacher, some of his finest work has been done outside the church. His influence has been exerted in a quiet way, and it is believed, because of this,that his efforts among the soldiers will be attended with more than usual success.
Mr Rogers was curate of St. Stephen's, Richmond, from 1901 to 1904, vicar of Yarragon 1904-07, and vicar of Korrumburra 1907-13. He has been in charge of St. Michael's parish for a little over four years, during which distinct progress has been made in almost every branch of church work.
At the farewell services on June 10 there were large congregations, the church in the evening being filled.
