Annointing of the Sick

“…and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.” Mark 6:13

The Catholic sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical ailments, but also for mental and spiritual sickness.

This sacrament is for anyone who might be sick or facing death, old age, serious mental illness, people who are going to have surgery, and those who might find strength with the sacrament. It is a blessing to help them make a transition from this world into God's kingdom. Special oils and prayers are used.

For any home emergency, call the Parish Office at 744-8566. All of our local hospitals are served by specially assigned Catholic chaplains.
