Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Extreme Unction or the Last Rites, is a ritual of healing appropriate for those experiencing the effects of ill health. Through this sacrament, the Church comforts and supports the person who is suffering and continues the healing ministry of Christ. For those who are about to die, the Church, in addition to the Anointing of the Sick, offers the Eucharist as viaticum – food for the journey home.


Please contact the Rectory if you would like to arrange for Communion for the Homebound or for the Anointing of the Sick.
