Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick, one of the Sacraments of Healing, allows those who are home bound due to illness to fully participate in the work and worship of the Body of Christ. Through this sacrament, the ill person is strengthened and provided peace and courage to endure the suffering; it unites the member to the passion of Christ, and forgives them of their sins if they were unable to receive it through reconciliation (Catechism 1532). The celebration of this sacrament is an opportunity for the deepening of the faith of the community who are able to witness the faith and devotion of those being anointed.

You can request anointing of the sick and Holy Communion by calling the parish office at 262-639-3223.
