FP-CowParsely2015

 

In the churchyard next to St Edmundsbury Cathedral, the cow parsley is at full height and for the next few weeks the gravestones have disappeared under a sea of white flowers. This is like our lives. We blossom and flourish, but all the time the grave, our mortality defines our existence. The Bible puts it like this: "our days are like the grass; we flourish like a flower of the field; when the wind goes over it, it is gone and its place will know it no more. But God's merciful goodness endures for ever". You are welcome to ponder the reality of our lives at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

Services

 The ground on which St Edmundsbury Cathedral is built has been holy ground for over a thousand years. Every day of the year, Morning and Evening Prayer is said or sung and the Eucharist is celebrated. In addition, thousands of people come from all over Suffolk and beyond to worship God at special services throughout the year, which celebrate our common life and acknowledge our common concerns.
