Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is a special opportunity for the Lord’s healing power to touch those who are experiencing an illness or the aging process. Any person afflicted with an illness or aware of the limitations inherent in aging is eligible for the sacrament. This includes the elderly, those anticipating major surgery, post-surgical patients, those suffering with long-term disability, heart and stroke patients, as well as those experiencing emotional or physical stress.
