Recognising service to the Cathedral, Diocese and County of Suffolk...

On Sunday 21 November, two special services take place at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, to honour eighteen men and women for their contributions to the life of the Cathedral, the Diocese and the wider community in Suffolk. At 10.30 am, the Eucharist service will include the presentation of the Order of St Edmund, the highest accolade the Cathedral can bestow which is awarded to those who have demonstrated ‘exemplary and unusual service’. Four members of the Cathedral community will receive this award: Susan Cockram, Liz Steele, Stewart Alderman and Stephen Dart.


Later, at 3.30 pm, six senior clergy and eight lay people will be recognised as canons of the Cathedral. The title of canon is given to individuals, both clergy and lay, who have given particular service to the Diocese. This year new canons are being recognised for their services to education, health services, the media, music and the charity sector.


“It is a delight to recognise the contributions of these wonderful people, who represent a diversity of skills and experience,” comments the Very Reverend Joe Hawes, Dean of St Edmundsbury. “Their dedication and service help to strengthen relationships and advance the work of the Cathedral and the wider work of the church among the communities of Suffolk and beyond.”


Both services will be livestreamed via the Cathedral’s Facebook page
