Thanks to a grant from the Verulam House Trust Fund The Bishop of St Albans, The Rt Revd Dr Alan Smith has given to each church in the Diocese a copy of his book “Saints & Pilgrims in the Diocese of St Albans”. The book has been specially written for the diocesan celebrations in 2014. It features 366 short chapters, one for each day of the year, recounting the story of some of the Christian men and women who have shaped the Diocese in Hertfordshire,Luton, Barnet and Bedfordshire.

The book will be kept on display in the Essex Chapel during the course of the year so do take the time to read the chapter for the day.
