If a sick person who received this Anointing recovers his health, he can in the case of another grave illness, receive this Sacrament again. If during the same illness the person’s condition becomes more serious the Sacrament may be repeated. It is fitting to receive the Anointing of the Sick just prior to a serious operation. The same holds for the elderly whose frailty becomes more pronounced.     

If you, or a member of your family, would like to receive the Sacrament of the Sick please contact Mgr. Bernard or Fr David or phone them on 01823 272700 to arrange a suitable time and date. If you or your family member are in Musgrove Park Hospital please ask the ward staff to contact the on call Catholic Chaplain.
