Anointing of the sick


The Anointing of the Sick is for those whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age.
“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. 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 )

Please receive this Sacrament if you know you are going into hospital or if anyone you know has a serious illness.
Praying the rosary can be a most comforting experience for a person preparing to move on to the new life. Other prayers and readings are available on request.
