Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sickanointing
Contact the parish office when a loved one is in the hospital, or seriously ill, so that a priest may visit as soon as possible. The Anointing with the Oil of the Sick is a special grace of healing and comfort given to the Christian as soon as it becomes clear that their health is seriously impaired. A person of any age who has entered an acute stage of illness may be anointed.

If at all possible, the sacrament should not be delayed until the person is at the point of death. For all who would like to receive this sacrament, there is a communal celebration of the sacrament of the sick within the 8:30 Mass on the second Saturday of each month, with some exceptions.

For more information, contact the parish office at 386-767-6111.
