In an emergency, call the parish at any time. Please contact the parish office if you or a loved one are hospitalized, or are confided to home or a nursing facility, to receive the Eucharist and/or Anointing.
Hospitals and healthcare facilities no longer routinely inform churches when a parishioner is admitted.
Traditionally referred to as Extreme Unction or Last Rites, the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick was previously most commonly administered to the dying, for the remission of sins and the provision of spiritual strength and health. In modern times, however, its use has been expanded to all who are gravely ill or are about to undergo a serious operation, and the Church stresses a secondary effect of the Sacrament: to help a person recover his health.
Like Confession and Holy Communion, to which it is closely linked, the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick can be repeated as often as is necessary.
