Anointing of the Sick

Formerly referred to as “Last Rites”, the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick previously was most commonly administered to the dying for the remission of sins and the provision of spiritual strength and health. The Church now makes this sacrament available to all Catholics who are gravely ill or are about to undergo surgery recognizing a secondary effect of this sacrament – to help a person recover health.  The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick can be repeated as often as necessary.

The priests of our parish are available anytime day or night to administer this sacrament.

Please call the Parish Office during normal business hours to make arrangements.

In an after hours emergency, please call the Rectory phone, 419-423-8776.
