Anointing of the Sick 

The Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of the Church in which the priest prays, lays hands and anoints the sick person with blessed oil.  Anyone who is dangerously ill due to sickness, injury or old age may be anointed. The sacrament is for serious mental or emotional illness as well. The rite states clearly that a person should be anointed at the beginning of illness, or before surgery whenever a serious condition is the reason for the surgery. The anointing may be repeated if the same illness or condition becomes more serious. Often a family may wait until an individual is in their final moments to request the Anointing of the Sick. It is truly best to make arrangements to celebrate the sacrament while the person is living, as the sacraments are encounters between a living person and God. If you would like to celebrate the sacrament contact the Parish Office.
