"By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayers 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." [CCC 1499]
The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is given to those who are seriously ill and not only to those who are near the point of death. Please contact Fr. Mark, 395-2393, if you or a family member would like to receive this sacrament.
