Anointing of the Sick

 

 

 Anointing of the Sick Ministry

 Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that is received by those who are ill or suffering.  By the sacred anointing and the prayer of the priest, the whole Church commends those who are sick to Christ.  The sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength, faith, peace, and courage, and his or her suffering is united with the suffering of Christ for the building up of the Church (Catechism of the Catholic Church [CCC], nos.1520-23).

Please contact the office at (719) 495-2351 to request Anointing of the Sick. 



In case of serious illness or old age, for Sacramental Emergencies please call 719-495-2351 EXT 15.
