Anointing of the Sick

Jesus came into the world to show God’s love. He often did this in places where we feel especially threatened: in the weakening of our life through sickness. God wants us to become well in body and soul and, therefore, to believe and to acknowledge the coming of God’s kingdom.

Traditionally referred to as Extreme Unction or Last Rites, the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is administered both to the dying and to those who are gravely ill or are about to undergo a serious operation, for the recovery of their health and for spiritual strength.

If you, or someone you know, would like to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, please do not hesitate to contact Fr Brendan. 

The Cathedral Chaplaincy Team visit Northampton General Hospital on Tuesday & Friday mornings. If a loved one is taken in to hospital and would like a visit, please call the Cathedral Parish office on 714556 and let them know which ward and their full name. If your loved one is in need of a priest in an Emergency, then please inform the nurse who will contact the on call Catholic Priest.
