Today we depart from the cycle of Sunday readings to celebrate the feast of the Transfiguration. The revelation of Jesus’ glory is accompanied by divine words: ‘This is my beloved Son….listen to him’. His words and actions tell us about God’s forgiveness, compassion and unfailing love for us.
The re-decorating of the Sacred Heart church is going well and already the church is looking splendid. Sunday Mass is celebrated in the parish hall probably for another two Sundays.

For weekday Masses, each week there is a Mass at St Joseph’s Sheringham on:
Mondays at 9.00 am
Tuesdays at 7.00 pm
Saturdays at 9.00 am
Looking ahead; a date for the diary. Our Annual Mass in the Garden of Remembrance at the Sacred Heart takes place on Tuesday 22nd August at 6.00pm. Should it be a wet evening the Mass will be celebrated in the church.
