Walk of witness, churches together, Norwich Catenians

Latest news of interest to the East Anglia Catholic community includes a procession of witness, a churches together event and new Norwich Catenians.

On Good Friday, March 29, about 60 members of the four Christian churches in Sawston came together for its Procession of Witness through the village starting at Sawston Free church and finishing at St Mary’s with hot cross buns and hot drinks.

Fr John Minh said: “As we walked through the village, we followed a life-sized cross carried by a member of each church in turn . We stopped at various points outside the shops where we listened to the Passion according to St Mark finishing with a prayer and hymn.

“This is a very moving procession and a great witness of our joint solidarity and friendship with our Christian brothers and sisters here in Sawston,” said John.
