100 years – The story of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich

On 3 February 2014 St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, will host a talk, given by the Dean of St Edmundsbury, the Very Reverend Dr Frances Ward, about the 100th anniversary of the Diocese which is being celebrated in 2014.

The talk is part of the Bury Past and Present Society programme and begins at 7.30 pm in the Nave of the Cathedral. All are welcome to this talk entitled ‘A Living Tradition: the story of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich’. Admission to members of the Bury Past and Present Society is free but other visitors are most welcome. A donation of £5 is suggested.

‘This is an important year in the history of the Cathedral and Diocese,’ comments the Dean. ‘We have a number of events planned, of which this talk is one, to reflect on our history and to explore the role of the church in Suffolk and the wider community in the years ahead.’

A new book, launched in late 2013 to celebrate Suffolk’s churches, entitled ‘100 Years, 100 Treasures’, will be on sale at the talk priced £5. It details 100 churches to visit which all have a special ‘treasure’, be that a painting, sculpture, window or memorial, to discover.

Many events are planned to mark this special anniversary including an exhibition of archival material, photos and registers which has opened in the Cathedral’s Treasury. The Treasury is open from Monday to Saturday 10 am to 3 pm.
