Anointing of the Sick

The Anointing of the Sick—formerly known as ‘last rites’—is no longer considered a sacrament only for those at the point of death. Instead, this healing sacrament is for all those who are facing major surgery, chronic illness, or the weakness that comes with age. A communal celebration of the sacrament is celebrated annually, or call the parish office to schedule an appointment. Whenever possible, the sacrament should not be delayed until the person is in imminent danger of death.

If you or a family member are in need of an Anointing, please call the parish office at 206-523-8787.
