5. Anointing of the Sick

If you know of a Catholic admitted to Kingston Hospital or sick/housebound please inform the Parish Priest or ask the staff to contact the hospital's Catholic chaplain. 


Catholic priests are restricted by information legislation and so have no way of knowing who the Catholics are in hospital unless someone informs them.

The sacrament of anointing the sick is given to those who are seriously ill by anointing them on the forehead and hands with holy blessed oil.
