Sacrament of the Sick

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. --Catechism of the Catholic Church 1499

The Sacrament of the Sick, also called Anointing of the Sick, is available for anyone preparing for major surgery, is seriously ill, or for medical emergencies.  It is God's promise in the midst of our serious physical difficulties. 

Anointing of the Sick is administered during the 8:30 a.m. Mass on the first Saturday of each month.

For medical emergencies or to schedule an appointment for a priest to administer the Sacrament of the Sick to a homebound person, please call the Parish Office at 714-774-2595.
