The Sacrament of the Sick provides spiritual help and strength to those who are unwell 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 your are facing an illness, or surgery and would like to be anointed please call the parish and Father will be happy to celebrate the sacrament with you, either in church, your home or the hospital.
For anyone who is in danger of death, please do not hesitate to contact the parish for the administration of the last rites.
Fr Dominic will always try to visit in an emergency.
