This sacrament (once known as Extreme Unction) is a sacrament of God’s healing love, strength and peace for those who are seriously ill, or weak through advanced age, or about to undergo major surgery.

This sacrament may be received as often as required, and receiving the sacrament should be normal for any Catholic who is seriously ill in some way. If you or someone you know would like to receive this sacrament please contact Fr Peter, or, if appropriate, the hospital chaplain.
