Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick

 

Anointing of the sick, formerly know as 'The Last Rites' or 'Extreme Unction', is now understood as a sacrament administered to anyone who, by illness or advanced age, becomes 'in danger of death'.  The person who is in need of this sacrament should contact the Parish Office, or if unable to do so, a family member should call.  The purpose of the Sacrament is primarily to give spiritual strength to the person as he or she fights illness, so as to not lose faith in God while in a weakened state.  It is administered by appointment only.
