Catholics have a serious duty to call for their Priest if they believe someone is in danger of dying.
For those who receive Holy Communion regularly, the following items are useful to prepare:
- A table or flat surface, covered with a cloth and standing crucifix
- Two candles or votive lights
- Holy Water
- A small glass or finger-bowl containing ordinary water, with a finger-cloth or paper tissue
Relatives and friends often find these items extremely helpful as they remind them an important Guest has been invited. However, there is no need to worry if you don't have them – they are not essential.
Catholics entering hospital, or their relatives, are urged to contact the hospital chaplain by asking the ward sister to inform him.

Gift Aid Declaration
Our Parish participates in the Diocese's Planned Giving scheme under which Parish members are invited to make regular donations by standing order or through the weekly Mass collection, with gift envelopes.
It's now much easier for the Church to obtain a small tax refund from every donation given by a taxpayer. All you need to do is sign a simple, one-off form.
We hold your information in the strictest confidence and we can't access your tax or financial information. If you'd like to help us in this way, first of all, Thank You! – please contact Vin Allerton on 773 3318 or Fr. Allen on 773 2324.
