The church of the Sacred Heart and St. Margaret Mary in Dereham is a small church, but one where visitors and new parishioners are assured of a warm welcome. We are always pleased to see children and babies at Mass, and we quite understand that they won't always be quiet and still! As part of the family of the Church they are always welcome here.
The Catholic community in Dereham, which is diverse as regards both nationality and age, endeavours to live out the commandments of Jesus that we should love God and love one another. Our main work is the worship of God, and we seek to accomplish this with simplicity, dignity and reverence. There is an emphasis on the teaching of the Faith, and on its implications for our daily life. As a Catholic Parish, we seek to manifest the love, joy and peace which God the Holy Spirit wishes to bestow upon us.
