Anointing of the sick

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is available to anyone who is unwell, facing surgery, or infirm because of old age. It is not reserved for those near death, but may be celebrated at any time.  The Sacrament draws upon God’s power to heal and comfort and supports the person’s faith in the midst of suffering.  

At St Gregory’s, Eucharistic Ministers are also available to bring Holy Communion to the sick and housebound who are unable to attend Mass.

For more information or to arrange a visit, please contact the church office.

If you are going into hospital and would like to receive a visit from the Catholic chaplain please tell the and also the ward sister on your arrival in hospital.
