Anointing of the Sick

The Anointing of the Sick—formerly known as ‘last rites’—is no longer considered a sacrament only for those at the point of death.  Instead, this healing sacrament is for all those who are facing major surgery, chronic illness, or the weakness that comes with age.  Communal celebrations of the sacrament are celebrated regularly.  

Here at Sacred Heart, Anointing of the Sick is offered at an 9:00 am Mass on the first Saturday of every month throughout the year or as the need arises.
