World Day of Prayer Helen writes 'The Committee (reps of various Churches) had their first meeting on Friday 9th November in the Cooper Room to plan the service to be held on 1st March 2019 and identify the help which will be needed to enable St Felix to host. The areas where help is required are music, technology and Hunger Lunch. Many thanks to those parishioners who have already offered assistance and the final arrangements will be discussed in the New Year. The next Committee Meeting is Friday 18th January 2019 at 2.00pm and is open to anyone who would like to attend.'

CAFOD World Gifts
Each year CAFOD publishes a catalogue of World Gifts, featuring items which you can buy in order to supply all kinds of needs in the third world. You send off the money, and receive a very nice card for each one, which you can then give to your friends as Christmas gifts - gifts from them to people in great need. It is an excellent scheme. We may fear that our friends will feel that they have been 'cheated' out of a 'proper gift' : but anyone who has received one of these 'world gifts' will testify to what a pleasure it is to receive, and instead of being given something which is maybe unnecessary, and not especially welcome, to know that - in your name - someone in real need has been helped. There is a supply of this year's catalogues in the Porch.
Very smart Those of you who have been in the Sacristies recently will have noticed new carpeting. It replaces carpeting which had become badly stained over the years, and which was completely worn out. The new carpeting completes the work began with the redecoration of this area in the summer by the men from Hollesley Bay, and now the one part of our church which was rather a slum looks very nice indeed.
Welcome! I've been very remiss in not introducing Tom and Linda Jones, who
moved to the Parish a few months ago, Tom and Linda were parishioners of mine
at Bury St.Edmunds some years ago, where they both taught at the
Post Cards of the Divine Mercy Windows
Carol, 'Carol from the Convent' as we affectionately call her, has created and given some excellent postcards of the new windows which the Bishop will bless today : they will be sold at the normal postcard-price of 40p, for church funds. We are most grateful. ( 'Though it was rather alarming to see Carol balanced high on a step-ladder to take the photographs!). The postcards are available in the Porch.
ST.EDMUND, KING AND MARTYR
Tuesday this week is the Feast of St.Edmund, the eighth-century King of East Anglia who was put to death because he refused to renounce his Christian Faith, and hand over his people to the pagan Danes who had invaded his lands. In earlier centuries he was regarded as Patron Saint of England, before being displaced by St.George. He is secondary patron of the Diocese of East Anglia, the primary patron being Our Lady of Walsingham.
Earlier this year a new book on St.Edmund was published - Edmund : in Search
