Anointing of the Sick

This sacrament used to be known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction. If anyone in your family has a serious illness, the Church would like to celebrate this sacrament of God’s healing love with that person. Please call the Parish Center to schedule this celebration. The priest will be happy to come to your home, the hospital, or wherever is most convenient for the ill person and the family. We encourage as many family members as possible to be present for this joyous celebration through which God heals, lifts up, and gives hope, peace and new life to His faithful people. This sacrament is not only to be received at the end of life but also whenever there is a serious illness of the body, mind, and spirit to promote total healing. For those to ill to come to church to receive communion, please contact the Parish Center for more information on our Eucharistic Ministry to the Sick.
