Anointing of the Sick

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 but also for mental and spiritual sickness. Not only can one receive this Sacrament when a person is dying or seriously injured to the point of death, but it is also administered when someone is ill, up in age, is having surgery and for several other reasons. It is administered to primarily help the person get spiritually well.  Before someone goes to the hospital for surgery or the like, contact one of the priests and we will gladly administer the sacrament to the person in need.

Visiting the Sick:

If you or someone you know is in the hospital, please call the rectory to let us know as the hospitals do not inform us.  If someone is confined to home for a period of time, please call the rectory.  We can arrange for someone to bring Communion to the home bound.
