“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” –John 14:6
Through the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, which has also been called Extreme Unction, a Catholic in danger of death is blessed by a priest in order to receive special grace and strength in that time of trial. If the recipient is conscious, he will often make a last confession before receiving this Sacrament; the conferral of this Sacrament on unconscious Catholics give them spiritual strength and blessings after death. It may be received more than once.
Please contact the Rectory or emergency services if you or a loved one is in need of this sacrament.
