St Felix


Happy St Felix day to all East Anglians out there! St Felix of Burgundy was responsible for the spread of Christianity in East Anglia from roughly 615 AD onwards, and in about 630 was made a bishop, with his See in Dunwich, Suffolk. East Anglia's present bishop is up to visit us today, so there will be celebrations no doubt...

I will try to post the daily St Francis de Sales selection later, but right now I've got house jobs to attend to!

Happy feast day (for yesterday). Hope you got an earlier answer in the affirmative - feast days do trump Lenten privations!

Thanks, yes I assumed so! I'm sure we made the other dioceses jealous.
