Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament that is received by those who are seriously ill or suffering. By the sacred anointing and the prayer of the priest, the Church commends those who are sick to Christ. The sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength, faith, peace and courage, and his/her suffering is united with the suffering of Christ.
This sacrament may be received by any Catholic who is facing a serious illness or is of advanced years. Individuals who are planning to inter the hospital or undergo major surgery are particularly encouraged to receive the sacrament before their admission to the hospital.
We do offer Eucharistic ministry to homebound, post-hospitalizations, and hospice parishioners.
Please call the Rectory office with your request for a pastoral visit.
