CelebrateEastAnglia650Charismatic Catholics all set to celebrate in Suffolk 

The Catholic charismatic weekend Celebrate East Anglia takes place in Bury St Edmunds on June 3 and 4 with a well-known line-up of speakers.

Speakers at the ecumenical event which is open to all, include David Wells, Director of Adult Formation and Youth Ministry in the Plymouth Diocese, Rev John Ryeland, Director of the Christian Healing Mission since 1997 and Gemma Wildsmith who oversees youth ministry for the Celebrate regional weekends and helps head up the ‘Release young leaders programme.
Christian mime artist Steve Murray will also be at the event and there will be a range of workshops and a Good News bookshop.

There will be groups for children and young people of all ages, led by experienced leaders, who will help develop the children’s relationship with Jesus, running faith-based and fun activities.
The weekend will include lively praise, daily Mass, a time of Adoration and an opportunity for Reconciliation and Prayer Ministry.  There will also be an opportunity for quiet private prayer before the Blessed Sacrament in the Celebrate chapel.

Organiser, Philip Walters, said: “We hope that the weekend will help people find inspiration and renewal in their faith in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We eagerly anticipate being encouraged on our spiritual journey through inspiring talks, creative liturgy and exciting worship.

“We are delighted to welcome again Bishop Alan. He is especially keen, in this time of our becoming missionary parishes, that we come and bring someone with us!”
