1st May 2020 – St Joseph’s Day message

Dear Parishioners,

I want to wish you all a very happy feast day on this Friday of St Joseph the Worker.

It is at times like these when the ‘lockdown’ has prevented so many people from getting on with their work that I have been praying for those who are forced to be idle and the effects it must have on them and their families.  Here in Sheringham a number of the local shops are doing a wonderful job at delivering supplies of food so that those who are having to stay isolated are looked after.

In today’s collect we prayed that ‘under the patronage of St Joseph we may complete the works you set us to do and attain the rewards you promise’.  May each of us find the strength and grace to do that as we try to help and support one another through these difficult times.

God bless you.

Fr James.
