Holy Communion for the Housebound and Sick


Bringing Holy Communion to the Housebound and Sick is a vital aspect of our service to the Parish. For those who have, year in, year out come to Mass, yet now through failing health can no longer make the journey, it is only right and proper that we should come to you.

Anyone can receive the Eucharist in his or her own home. Those wishing to may simply contact us through the home page. Initially, you will receive a visit from the Parish Priest who, if it is appropriate will reconcile you to the Church and administer Holy Communion. He will then arrange for a named Eucharistic Minister to contact you that you may agree with them when they will bring Holy Communion to you.

In accordance with Diocesan policy all of our Eucharistic Ministers have had a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly CRB) check, covering working with children and vulnerable adults. We want you to feel comfortable with all those whom you invite into your home.
