Anointing of the Sick

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick has as its purpose the conferral of a special grace on the Christian experiencing the difficulties inherent in the condition of grave illness or old age. Each time a Christian falls seriously ill, he may receive the Anointing of the Sick, and also when, after he has received it, the illness worsens.

Our Parish celebrates this sacrament individually (after Mass) and during a Sunday liturgy annually. Please see a Parish Pastoral Team member to arrange for an anointing after Mass or call the Parish Office. It is best to arrange the anointing while the person who is ill can participate.
