This Sacrament, performed only by the Pastor, celebrates and reminds us of God’s compassion and helps us to experience spiritual and physical strengthening when we are seriously ill. It is for those awaiting surgery, with a serious illness, or those who are impaired by old age. This Sacrament may be received at the church, in the home or hospital. Appointments with the Pastor for receiving this Sacrament may be made by calling the parish office.
“By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.” CCC 1499
