Sheringham trio receive medals for dedicated service

Three members of Our Lady & St Joseph in Sheringham have received the East Anglia Diocesan Medal for their service both during the Covid pandemic and for many years before.

The three “worthy recipients”, received the medals from parish priest Fr James Fyfe on Sunday September 19. They were:

Keith Holt – for his work over many years as Treasurer and for his extra work on the house and fabric. The parish has benefitted from his wise advice and experience and will miss him.

Michael O’Connor – for his long service as an Altar Server and, since retirement from that, he has devoted many hours to keeping the gardens around the house and church in good order and has greatly enhanced the look of the Memorial Garden next to the church.

Mary Mustoe-Arthur – for her communications skills. Since the pandemic began, especially when Mass was said by the priest and no-one was in church, Mary has sent out a regular newsletter together with the usual parish newsletter. Both have been a great blessing to the many people who have been kept in touch with parish news and notice of various events, etc.
