Anointing of the Sick
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death.
“By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.”
– Catechism of the Catholic Church
If you are ill, infirm, hospitalized or home bound and in need of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, please contact the rectory.
