Sacraments

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.
For details about specific sacraments go to the relevant page.
Baptism, Marriage, Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

 
Pastoral care of those who are sick

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.
