Papal Nuncio visit, Beryl retires, free peace concert

Latest news of interest from across the Diocese of East Anglia includes a retiring shop manager, a Papal Nuncio visit to Cambridge and a free peace concert.

Beryl Stock (pictured above) retired as Shop Manager at St John’s Cathedral Narthex in October after 25 years dedicated service. She has seen many changes over the years, with the shop changing and growing under her skilful direction. Beryl started as a volunteer and took on more and more responsibility, with an ever-increasing space and stock. She is greatly missed by her colleagues, volunteers and parishioners who have come to know Beryl as a friend said general manager Charley Purves.

The Papal Nuncio to Malta, Archbishop Savio Hon SDB is visiting Cambridge on January 29 to celebrate a Cantonese Mass at OLEM at 2.30pm. His Excellency will use a special liturgy for the first Sunday after the Lunar New Year (The Year of the Rabbit will begin on Sunday day January 22). 

Dominic Chung said: “We warmingly welcome all brothers and sisters in Christ from the Diocese of East Anglia and beyond, to join in this Mass and celebrate the Lunar New Year. You do not have to know Cantonese – English text of the Mass will be provided.”
