Celebrating St Edmund...


St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, will mark its connections to St Edmund with a number of events on Thursday 20 November, the day in the church calendar marked as the Feast Day of St Edmund.


In the morning over 200 local school children will visit the Cathedral to find out more about St Edmund, taking part in drama and music activities as well as visiting the site of the shrine of St Edmund in the Abbey Gardens. Edmund sculptures will be on display in the Cathedral, made by pupils at Howard Middle School.


Later in the day the Cathedral’s group of volunteers, known as the Guild of St Edmund, meets, and following a service in the Cathedral and lunch, will hear a talk entitled ‘Wherefore Edmund, King and Martyr?’ by Charles Taylor, a member of the Cathedral congregation and a volunteer tour guide and lay chaplain.


‘The story of St Edmund is key to our identity here in ‘Edmund’s Town’, comments Sarah Friswell, Cathedral PR Manager. ‘We are pleased to provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn more about our local saint.’


The Cathedral will also hold a service (Solemn Eucharist) on Sunday 23 November at 10 am to mark the Feast of St Edmund.
