Painting the Church

The painting of the outside of the church and the inside of the sacristy will start on Monday 24th September. The church will be closed on Monday and Tuesday 24th/25th September whilst the painters are in.


Good King Wenceslaus

Good King Wenceslaus was, in fact the Sovereign Duke of Bohemia, murdered by his brother in hatred of the Faith. He is much venerated in Czechia (the new name for the Czech Republic), Slovakia, Germany and Austria, where they know him as Wenzel. His relics are enshrined in Prague Cathedral and pilgrims still come after a thousand years. The citadel above Prague houses the seat of the President in the old royal palace. Its cathedral also has the shrine of St John Nepomuc. A few hundred yards away in the Premonstatensian Monastery of Strahov, St Norbert of Xanten lies buried and at the foot of the hill is the church of Our Lady of Victories where the justly famous Infant of Prague is venerated.
