This sacrament is for the seriously ill or frail and aged. It includes a prayer for both physical and spiritual healing and an anointing with blessed oil on the forehead and both hands.
We celebrate this sacrament during the 8.00am Friday morning Mass, every second month, for anyone who feels in need of it.
Parishioners who are ill, or who have a family member or relative in need of this sacrament, are welcome to contact the parish office. Our priest is happy to visit the sick person in their home, in hospital or wherever they need the anointing.
According to the mind of the Church, Catholics should not wait until someone is dying before asking for this sacrament.
