Annointing of the Sick

The Catholic sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, is a ritual of healing appropriate not only for physical but also for mental and spiritual sickness.  It is administered to the dying as well as those who are gravely ill or are about to undergo a serious operation for the recovery of their health and for spiritual strength.

In our parish, Anointing of the Sick is available by contacting one of the priests.  Families of those in hospital or care homes may request this sacrament on the individual’s behalf.
