ST JAMES CHURCH FESTIVAL SERVICE

All are welcome to a special service this Sunday at St Jamesís Church, Sotwell, to celebrate the feast of the churchís patron saint. Tea and cakes will be served in the idyllic churchyard after the service. This celebration replaces the normal 9.30 am service at St Agathaís Church.

The apostle St James was beheaded in Judea in the year 44 BC, and some Christians believe that his remains are buried under what is now the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. Many make the pilgrimage to the relics, along a network of routes marked by the saintís symbol: a scallop shell. St Jamesís feast day actually falls on Friday 25th, and is a public holiday in some European countries.
