Coronavirus St Anne’s : Brockcare

As a church, we are committed to care for our community during the current Coronavirus outbreak - especially those who are elderly or vulnerable. 

We are working with Brockcare, a group run by the Anglican Church in Brockenhurst, who is coordinating help throughout the village. For parishioners who are living in Sway, a similar group has been set up, so we can ensure you get the help you need.

If you have to self-isolate, we can arrange for shopping to be dropped off at your door, and/or for someone to keep in contact with you by telephone, in order to maintain a social link and to offer reassurance.

Here are the relevant contact details:

ACCESS TO THE OTHER SACRAMENTS:

Pope Francis has said that these crisis conditions now permit Bishops to authorise General Absolution when it is needed. And he has also said, in effect, that if it is not possible or advisable to access a priest we should pray to God directly expressing our sorrow for sin and our desire for forgiveness and then trust confidently in God’s mercy.

Fr David will to be available on the phone for counselling and reassurance. He will also be on call to administer the Anointing of the Sick in urgent cases.
