“By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. and indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.” ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church §1499
A priest can be contacted at any time (day or night) for the Anointing of the Sick and Viaticum by calling 02837 507214
A special communal celebration of the Anointing of the Sick is usually organised on/around the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes (11 February). Dates and times will be published on the website and in parish bulletin.
