The sacrament of the sick is appropriate for those with a serious illness or an ongoing serious illness, those preparing for major surgery, the elderly and for those approaching death.
In grave illness the priest should always be summoned. The messenger should try give a clear idea of what is wrong, and should ask to speak to the priest himself, or leave a message if the priest is not at home. The priest should be called even in cases of fatal accident or sudden death.
Please contact Father Tom if any of the above applies or if you have any questions regarding this sacrament.
