Hospital Chaplaincy Contacts
If you or a member of your family are admitted to one of the local hospitals, do please let the hospital’s Catholic chaplain know. You should ask the ward staff to contact the Catholic chaplain. You can also phone chaplains directly -- see the list of contacts below.
Data protection laws prohibit hospital staff from taking the initiative of letting a chaplain know your religion. The request to ward staff MUST come explicitly from the patient, a family member or a friend.
There is always a priest on call for emergencies -- it is best to ask the ward staff because the hospital switchboard will have an emergency contact number for the duty priest. Your local parish will not have that number as it changes depending on the duty priest. Sometimes the priest will be on site in the hospital, at other times he will come from his parish.

St Aidan's meal train
We have a "meal train" service in the parish, where parishioners have the opportunity to sign up to bring a meal to someone going through a difficult time or needing a short-term helping hand.
If you would like to request a meal train because you are struggling for any reason, are grieving a loved one, are about to have treatment or surgery, or have just welcomed a new baby, please email Katie Stockermans (email@example.com) or speak to Fr Peter. Katie will discuss some details and timings with you and take it from there.
If you are interested in offering to cook a meal, keep an eye out for a newsletter notice about an active meal train: a MealTrain.com link will allow you to put your name on a calendar to commit to
cooking on a certain date and will tell you all the details you need for delivering the meal.
