Church dedicated to St. Henry Walpole

THE small chapel on the village green at Burnham Market, Norfolk, w a s dedicated last month to St. Henry Walpole, one of the recently canonised English Martyrs, who was born at nearby Docking. Bishop Alan Clark, Auxiliary, Northampton, performed the dedication ceremony.

Although the chapel has been in use since 1958 (previously it was a garage and motor showroom) it had never been formally dedicated merely named after an earlier St. Henry, of Bavaria.

In his sermon, Bishop Clark welcomed several non-Catholic guests to the ceremony, including the present vicar of Docking, where the saint's name can be seen on the first page of the parish register.
