Jesus showed compassion toward the sick and suffering. The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick extends God’s grace of spiritual strength, peace, and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with facing a serious health challenge or advanced age.
If a loved one is gravely ill or facing major surgery, one of our priests will administer the Sacrament of the Sick. Anointing of the Sick is available for all those suffering from a serious illness or notably weakened by the difficulties of old age. Sickness includes serious mental illness, depression, and addiction. Please do not postpone this important rite.
