Anointing of the Sick

"May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up."

The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last sacraments one will receive. A sacrament is an outward sign established by Jesus Christ to confer inward grace. In more basic terms, it is a rite that is performed to convey God’s grace to the recipient, through the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Please contact the Parish Center in order to receive this sacrament. Anointing does not need to wait till the final moments of life. It is better to call the priest earlier in order to ensure that a priest will have time.
