This Blog started with updates on the progress of the work repairing and improving the church building.  This has now finished, and included repairs to the roof and stonework, photovoltaic panels on the roof, improved disabled access, updating the electrics and lighting, installing a sound system and an exciting project making textile panels to show the history of the church and the people who have lived around it.

Elizabeth of Hungary, also known as Saint Elizabeth of Thuringia, has a strange miracle attributed to her. Her husband, Louis of Thuringia, was coming home from hunting when he met Elizabeth on her way to take food to the poor. Although he supported her charitable work, some members of his court spread rumours that she stole gold from the royal treasury to pay for it. He was forced, then, to question her about what was hidden under her cloak. She opened her cloak to reveal a number of white and red roses.


Elizabeth was born in Hungary in July, 1207, daughter of King Andrew II of Hungary, and married to Louis at the age of 14. At 22, by now a follower of the teaching of St Francis, she was widowed, and died in November 1231, at the age of only 24. She built a hospital at Marburg, and spent her last years caring for the sick and the poor.
