St Morrell of Angers was made Bishop in AD423 so 2023 will be the 1,600th anniversary of his ordination.
A number of events have been planned with the first event being an official opening of St Morrell’s Round
this September, two days before St Morrell’s feast day. The Bishop of Leicester, Bishop Martyn, has agreed to come to Hallaton on Sunday 11th September to inaugurate the pilgrimage.
Ride+Stride 2022: Saturday 10th September
Ride+Stride is a Church Open Day as well as a sponsored event and if you haven’t already registered your church/chapel for the event, there is still plenty of time to do so – please use the online registration form half way down this link https://www.lhct.org.uk/ride-and-stride/ or contact Janet Arthur (firstname.lastname@example.org / 07840 543288). The more churches and chapels register for the event, the more money will be raised (shared between the church/chapel of your choice and the Trust). It raised £39,000 in 2020 and £35,000 in 2021 (pandemic notwithstanding) so – with your help and support – the aim is to raise between £40,000 and £50,000 in 2022!
