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.
The Anointing of the Sick is for the Catholic faithful when his or her health is seriously weakened or who is going to have surgery. Contrary to many people's belief, it can be received more than once if the original illness gets worse or if another serious sickness is diagnosed.
It is important to remember that the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick complements medical treatment. It does not replace it. God uses the skill of the medical staff as well as modern medical techniques to restore health.
Please contact the parish office to make arrangements for Anointing of the Sick.
