We have recently launched the Sacred Heart Parish Care Group comprising our Extraordinary Ministers. The group meets every 4 to 6 weeks in the Parish Hall, in order to share relevant information concerning those parishioners residing in the various care homes/hospitals in the area, who currently receive Holy Communion from us. The meeting is an opportunity to keep abreast of their health and welfare. Also it is a chance to find out about others who are sick either at home or in hospital who would like to be visited and to receive the Eucharist.

If you would like to find out more about becoming an Extraordinary Minister or if you know of someone who is not well enough to attend Mass, but would appreciate receiving Holy Communion, then please talk to the Parish Office by emailing
hook@portsmouthdiocese.org.uk or calling on 01256 577007.
