GOING IN TO HOSPITAL
If you are going into hospital please be aware the the hospital staff will not ask you about your religion. You have to notify them that you are a Roman Catholic and that you would like the CHAPLAIN to know that you are in the hospital. Alternatively please contact the parish office or email via the contact page and we ensure the Chaplain is notified.
Sacrament of the Sick
The Sacrament of the Sick provides spiritual help and strength to those who are unwell or elderly, and is often administered to the housebound. The priest prays for, and with, the sick person and anoints them with Holy Oil. In the case of a long illness it is more helpful for the patient to receive the Sacrament at a time when they are able to appreciate the benefits it confers.
If you know someone who requires this sacrament please contact the parish office on 020 8560 1431
