Like the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the Anointing of the Sick is another healing sacrament of the church, carrying on Jesus’ own ministry of healing.  No longer know as “Last Rites” this sacrament calls on God’s healing for those physically or psychologically ill.

No longer referred to as the “Last Rites,” this beautiful sacrament is for anyone over the age of seven facing a serious illness or surgery.

Anointing may be celebrated more than once in the course of an illness, and may also be celebrated when death is near.  It is not celebrated after the time of death.

Anointing of the Sick is available on the first Saturday of every month and is administered to those over the age of seven who are facing a serious illness or surgery. Gather around the Baptismal font after the 4:30PM Vigil Mass.

To arrange a private anointing, simply email the parish office or call the parish office at (619) 463-6629.
