To find treasure is a stroke of good fortune and we would do anything to keep it. Today’s Gospel tells us that the greatest treasure is to find in the Lord the kingdom of heaven. But to take possession of it we must be prepared to pay the price of everything in order to keep it.
The re-decorating of the Sacred Heart church has begun and will continue for at least three weeks. During this time the church will not be used for services.

Saturday Confessions will be in the presbytery from 12 to 12.30 and by appointment.
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
