The walk from St Mary’s Bridge, Derby to Padley Chapel, Grindleford is to commemorate the Padley Martyrs and to recognise the distances that people would walk to attend Mass in those days. The walk is now being linked with the CAFOD request to walk alongside the refugees. See poster on

The sacraments lie at the heart of the Church’s life, and so our preparation for each of the sacraments takes place in a way that respects the nature of each sacrament and the person receiving it. We try and express how each sacrament is a touch of God in our lives and at the same time links us with the community of his family, the Church.
This sacrament reflects the central focus of healing in the life of Jesus. For some people it has become associated with “Extreme Unction” or “The Last Rites”, as though it is only conferred either in danger of death or during one’s last moments on earth. In fact it is, as it says, the sacrament of the sick and is conferred on anyone suffering from a serious illness or experiencing the need of Christ’s comfort and consolation in suffering or distress. It is conferred on our sick and housebound in a special service on the occasion of the Bishop’s visitation, and our sister parish of All Saints usually holds an annual service for the sacrament to which members of both parishes are invited. Anyone entering hospital is encouraged to contact Sister Mary in the Chaplaincy to ensure they receive visits and Holy Communion if they wish. We do not have automatic access to hospital records so do not know you are in hospital unless you tell us. Sister Mary will then ask the priest on duty to confer the sacrament of the sick if she and the patient deem it appropriate. The priest’s hands are laid in silence on the head of the sick person, then the anointing is on the forehead and palms of the hands.
