In the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, the Church celebrates the healing power of Christ and his presence with us in the midst of suffering and sickness. By the power of the Holy Spirit, this holy anointing strengthens the weakened individual and encourages them in faith. Typically, candidates for the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick are those who are seriously ill or preparing for surgery. Also, those who are advanced in years and are feeling the burdens of old age are encouraged to receive this strengthening

Call the rectory for a visit from the priest for serious illnesses, surgery, or near death situations.
