Are you celebrating the Feast of St Matthias?

According to this page of the 1549 edition of the Book of Common Prayer, today is the Feast of St Matthias, in honour of which the owner of the book has noted that a 'vygyll' should take place the previous day. This is one of only twelve copies of this earliest edition of the Prayer Book, and you can find out more on our 101 Treasures page.
