Through the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick priests, the whole Church commends those who are ill to the merciful care of our suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them.
Anointing is available for any Catholic suffering serious illness. In addition to individual requests, we celebrate the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick as a community within the context of a weekday Mass. Besides those in serious illness, the sacrament may be received by the elderly who have been weaker and those waiting for surgery when a serious medical condition is the reason for the operation. Sick children who have sufficient use of reason may also be helped by the celebration. Those who are unconscious or who have lost the use of reason, provided that they probably would have asked for the sacrament had they the use of their faculties may receive the sacrament.
Furthermore in many cases the mentally ill may be anointed, provided that they are willing to accept the anointing without fear and anxiety.
Please contact the parish office to make arrangements.
