Anointing of the Sick

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 

The celebration is this sacrament can be for anyone who is seriously sick, before going into surgery, elderly, or other reasons for seeking God's healing power.

We hope to have a Communal Celebration of this Sacrament in the Fall of each year.
