Crowds flock to St Edmund’s to light a candle

Many thanks to the CAFOD team in Bungay for sharing their latest news with us.

Crowds flocked to St Edmund’s church on Sunday during the Bungay Christmas Street Fair on 1 December to light a candle for a loved one or for a special intention. Organised by the  CAFOD team from the Bungay end of the parish – Sue Altarelli and Jenny Beaugeard – all proceeds from the 20p candles went to CAFOD. The candles and a craft stall selling cards by Sue Altarelli and cot quilts by parishioner Felicity Todd made £76.32 for CAFOD. Just as important, 182 people (and three dogs) visited the beautiful grade 1 church to pause a moment, reflect, look round and listen to Gregorian chant playing.
