The Anointing of the Sick

                                                                        

The Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that continues Jesus’ healing ministry in our day. It expresses the whole Church’s concern for the sick and our belief in the healing love of Jesus. This sacrament is no longer limited to the dangerously ill but is available on request to anyone facing the limitations of serious illness or advanced age.

The sacrament is also celebrated communally at the Eucharistic liturgies on a selected occasion during the year.
