If you or a loved one are seriously ill and in need of the anointing of the sick, please call our parish office or email Fr. John at firstname.lastname@example.org. As a general rule, we are not informed when our parishioners are admitted to the hospital, so please notify us if you would like us to visit you. If you have a pastoral emergency requiring the sacramental presence of a priest, please call our parish office and follow the directions in order to reach the emergency priest contact.
“By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer 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. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1499).
