Cream teas, Day with Mary and teddy bears’ picnic

Latest news from across the Diocese of East Anglia includes a cream tea party, a Day With Mary and a teddy bears’ picnic.

A Cream Tea Party (pictured above) was held at St Michael’s Huntingdon on Sunday September 2, on a perfect warm and sunny Sunday afternoon with clear blue sky in the church garden.

About 40 parishioners enjoyed homemade scones and jam with cream and unlimited cups of tea. Fr Philip Shryane said: “It was a very enjoyable afternoon giving parishioners the chance to meet and chat, often with others who attend a different Mass and whom they do not get to see very often. It was a very well good event”.

Fr Philip and a few others were the waiters and the afternoon also raised a little over £150 for the parish.

A Day With Mary is to be run at St Felix Parish Church in Felixstowe on Saturday October 20 from 10am.

It will include the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary, the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary, Mass, a bring and share lunch, Exposition of The Blessed Sacrament, talk about Our Lady, the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary and the Divine Mercy

There is no cost and no need to book. Further details are available from Philip Hills at The church is on Gainsborough Road, Felixstowe, IP11 7HT.

Teddy bears, a frog and a unicorn enjoyed a picnic tea with their young owners in the presbytery garden at St Felix parish, Felixstowe on Sunday August 19.

Members of the children’s liturgy team and others organised games with a teddy bear theme and there were art activities, including making teddy bear masks for around 20 participants. A tea was served which featured crisps and cakes in the form of teddy bears and the afternoon ended with a singing of the teddy bears picnic song and a reading of Goldie Locks and the Three Bears by the Parish Priest.
