Sacrament of the Sick

Receiving Sacrament of the Sick

No longer called Last Rites, this sacrament is celebrated after the noon Mass on the first Sunday of the month and by appointment through the Center. You are eligible to be anointed if you are seriously ill; about to undergo a difficult operation; or suffering the effects of advanced age. This sacrament, like all sacraments, is for the living. The Church prays for recovery from grave illness.
