Many people come to Westminster Abbey every year seeking God's forgiveness, healing and wholeness, as part of their journey as followers of Jesus Christ. The Sacraments of Reconciliation (confession) and the Anointing of the Sick (with laying-on of hands) are offered at Westminster Abbey for any who wish to receive them. Please enter the Abbey via the Great West Door and inform the Marshal at the gate that you are here for this purpose. The Marshal will direct you to a priest.
