Mary in art, service for veterans, Clare renewal day

Latest news from the Diocese of East Anglia includes a talk by Fleur Dorrell, a service for veterans, and a day of renewal at Clare Priory.

Fleur Dorrell from the Bible Society will be speaking on the subject of ‘Mary in Art’ at an ecumenical meeting organised by the Guild of Our Lady of Grace of Ipswich.

It will take place from 10.30 for 11am to 12 noon on Saturday February 25 at Museum Street Methodist Church (entrance in Black Horse Lane, IP1 2EF). Donations are requested.

A service has been organised by the charity ‘Outside the Wire’ for all military veterans and their families as a thank you to those who have sacrificed so much for their country and to show our appreciation for those who have served in so many theatres of war.

Outside the Wire is a charity working under the umbrella of the Matthew Project and specialises in giving help to any serving and ex-military personnel with drug, alcohol, PTSD and social problems, which are experienced by many within and on leaving the services.

The service will be held at St John’s Cathedral on Unthank Road on Sunday April 23 at 2pm. There will be refreshments after the event in the Cathedral Narthex.

Could any clergy who would like to attend to represent their own community please contact Rev Patrick Limacher, email
