Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical but also for mental and spiritual sickness. If you or a loved one are facing major surgery or feel the need to receive Anointing of the Sick, please call the rectory if you would like a priest to come to your home.

Patients at local hospitals who wish to receive the Sacrament need only to notify the nurse caring for them or the hospital chaplain and they will arrange for the priest on duty to come and administer the Sacrament.
