“By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1499
If you or a family member are scheduled for any kind of surgery, you may call the parish office and schedule a time when you or your loved one can receive this powerful sacrament. If you know in advance of an upcoming hospital stay, please let us know. The lists that we receive from our local hospitals are often incomplete.
