It is important that on admission to hospital, a patient (or his/her carers) inform the admission staff that they are Catholic. The hospital will not ask for this information, it is up to the patient to make it known and to make sure that a note is made. As of September 2018, Gloucester NHS no longer employ a catholic chaplain. In an emergency, please ask the nursing staff to contact the Chaplaincy Office at the hospital (or ring 03004 222222 and ask for the Catholic Chaplain)

NOTE that all use of the Old Priory must be booked with the Parish office - they keep a diary for use of the Church, and Old Priory rooms and their version of bookings is the authoritative one. The calendar above is intended to show the use of the rooms so that if you have a need to book them, you can see in advance what the availability is likely to be! Events organised for Parish groups, religious meetings etc. are normally free; other bookings for parties, social groups etc. please ask in the parish office for booking rates.
