Anointing of the Sick

Add Sat, Jul 20 @ 11:00 AM

Join us on Sat, Jul 20 at 11:00am for an Anointing of the Sick Service.

Who receives this Sacrament?

The Sacrament is NOT only for those who are at the point of death. Hence, as soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age, the fitting time for them to receive this Sacrament has certainly arrived (SC 73). If a sick person who received this anointing recovers their health, they can in the case of another grave illness receive this Sacrament again. It is fitting to receive the Anointing of the Sick just prior to a serious operation. The same holds for the elderly whose frailty becomes more pronounced (CCC 1515)
