Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick / Pastoral Care

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick places emphasis on the Lord's compassion during the struggle against pain and illness.  The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is the Church's sacrament for those who are sick and aging, and is a sacred moment when we pray for God's grace to strengthen someone who is suffering from any form of illness.  Anyone who is facing a serious illness or operation is encouraged to request this Sacrament.  A person need not be in danger of dying. The Sacrament can be received more than once over the course of an illness, as a person's health changes. 

For visits and Communion to the homebound or Anointing of the Sick, please call the Parish Office.
