Anointing - Pastoral Care of the Sick

Pastoral Care of the Sick includes visiting frail and housebound parishioners to celebrate the Sacraments of Eucharist and Anointing of the Sick.
There is a regular pattern of visits to Meadbank Nursing Centre and George Potter house where the Mass and Anointing of the sick are celebrated with the Catholic residents.
Visits to other residential institutions within the parish and home visits can be arranged by speaking to any of the clergy.
Parishioners who are going into hospital are invited to let one of the parish clergy know, so they can be included in the parish prayers for the sick.
Since all hospitals make provision for chaplaincy services, it is recommended that parishioners request the catholic chaplain arrange for the celebration of the sacraments during any time spent in hospital.
