What we believe about the Sacrament of the Sick

We believe that in the Sacrament of the Sick, through the ministry of the priest, Jesus heals the sick from sin and sometimes from physical illness. 

Through the Sacrament of the Sick, if it is God's will, a sick person can be physically healed of illness, but the primary effect is for the sick person to receive the Holy Spirit's gift of peace and courage to deal with the difficulties that come with serious illness or old age.

How can I arrange for a loved one to receive it?

At home

If you have a relative or friend who needs to receive the Sacrament of the Sick and they are at home, please contact the parish office and arrange for a priest to visit and administer the Sacrament.

At hospital

If your relative or friend is in hospital, please ask the staff on the ward to contact the hospital chaplain who will administer the Sacrament.
