Anointing of the Sick

Like all sacraments, Holy Anointing was instituted by Jesus Christ. The special grace of this sacrament unites a sick person to the passion of Christ providing strength, peace, and the courage to endure in a Christian manner the sufferings of illness. This sacrament is not exclusively for those at the point of death but also encompasses anyone of the faithful facing surgery, sickness, old age, or mental illness. To schedule an anointing, please call the parish office at 317-781-5959.
