Sacraments for the sick

Clergy are available for a visit or administering the sacraments for the sick at hospitals, nursing homes, etc. Visits to people in care homes or hospitals should follow advice from the staff on infection control in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Chaplains are no longer able to access computerised hospital lists to find the names of Catholics who have been admitted. If you are aware of anyone who is Catholic being admitted to Addenbrookes Hospital who would like to see a chaplain or receive one of the sacraments, please inform the Chaplaincy (01223 217769) email:

Catholic patients should tell the ward clerk and tick the box giving permission for a member of the chaplaincy team to visit. It is not sufficient to just put your denomination on the hospital form.
