Sponsored Cycle Ride This is coming up on Saturday September 10th. Cycle (or walk) to as many churches as you can - having collected lots of sponsorship beforehand! Half of the money you collect goes to the Suffolk Church Trust to repair churches throughout the county, and half to the church of your choice - hopefully St.Felix! This is a really good opportunity to raise money for our church - and have an enjoyable time as well. Felixstowe is remarkable in having so many churches and chapels, and it will be easy to pick up a good 'score' without having ridden very far! Fr. John is hoping to ride this year, as his 1920's bicycle is currently in good order : he wonder whether any young cyclists would like to come with him?

We joined in the mid-day Sung Mass, and after our picnic lunch, entered through the Holy Door, and followed the Stations of the Cross. After which we left for the village, and visited some of the places of interest in which it abounds.
Anciently, people referred to the Holy Land of Walsingham,
And of course it is a consequence of what happened at
