Order of St Edmund awarded to Cathedral volunteers...

Five people, who have demonstrated exceptional service to St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, will receive the Order of St Edmund on Sunday 22 November.

This award is given on or around St Edmund’s Day and is awarded by the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich. It was first awarded in 2002 and there are now a total of 15 recipients. Those being honoured this year are John Moore, Paul Deane, Jill Staplehurst, Margaret Ellis and Canon Cedric Catton. All have given service to the Cathedral over many years in a number of roles, covering aspects of the life of the Cathedral including its governance and finances, its work with visitors, its music and worship, maintenance and gardening.

‘This is a very special award, richly deserved by these five dedicated people, who give so much to the life and ministry of the Cathedral,’ comments the Dean of St Edmundsbury, the Very Reverend Dr Frances Ward. ‘Without faithful people such as these, we simply could not achieve our goal of being a vibrant Christian community serving the people of Bury St Edmund and Suffolk.’

The awards will be given during Choral Evensong at 3.30 pm on Sunday 22 November, when new canons of the Cathedral will also be installed.
