2014 marks the centenary of the diocese, a number of special events are planned and there is hopefully something to appeal to everyone.
On 29 March 2014, we shall welcome the Archbishop of Canterbury the Most Revd Justin Welby to the diocese to launch the main programme of events for the centenary year. Full details available shortly.
An exhibition in the Treasury about the creation of the Diocese in 1914 with archival material and an insight in to life in Bury St Edmunds in 1914 runs until 31 March. Do pop in Monday – Saturday 10 am to 3 pm.
There's plenty in store for children and young people too with a full programme of activities inspired by Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress.
Celebration services will take place at the Regent Theatre, Ipswich, on 6 July.
The Cathedral will be transformed from 24-27 July by the Reflections Flower Festival.
Pilgrimage is the centenary theme with pilgrimages planned to the Holy Land pilgrimage led by Bishop Nigel to Santiago de Compostella led by Canon Philip Banks or to Kagera with the Dean.
The centenary year will draw to a close with special events and services on Sunday 23 November.
