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.

Anointing of the Sick

Anytime a person is facing a serious illness, surgery or hospitalization, it is proper to receive the sacrament of anointing of the sick.


Should you, or someone you know, be unable to attend Mass because of illness, arrangements can be made to have communion administered in the home by a pastoral care volunteer.
