A MARRIAGE ENRICHMENT PROGRAMME has been produced by the diocese to support couples and families at parish level. Two married couples, of any age, from each deanery, are being invited to assist with implementing this programme, i.e. to deliver it to parishioners once a month for twelve months. N.B. This is not marriage preparation but marriage support. If you and your spouse would like to volunteer for this, please let me know this weekend and I will pass on your contact details to the diocese. Thank you.
IF YOU OR A RELATIVE OR FRIEND has the misfortune of being admitted to hospital, please make sure the admitting nurse knows that you are a Roman Catholic and whether you would like the Roman Catholic chaplain to visit you. Furthermore, let it be known, both to the nurse and your family, that you require a priest to administer the Sacrament of the Sick should you require an operation or become dangerously ill. Due to the Data Protection Act this information is no longer available to chaplains directly so they will not even know you are in hospital unless you or someone else, on your behalf, informs them!
