The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last sacraments one will receive. The anointing conveys God’s grace to the individual through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Refer to Catholic Online- http://www.catholic.org for more information.)
Call the Parish Office immediately if you or a loved one requires Anointing of the Sick.
