The Sacrament of the Sick is celebrated by appointment or you may attend the Mass of Anointing celebrated on the last Wednesday of the month at 6:45pm in the main church.

Those who receive the Sacrament should have a medical condition of serious illness or injury or simply old age.


"He summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two.... They anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them" (see Mark 6:7-13). After Jesus ascended into heaven, the Church continued to be a sacrament of healing: "Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven" (James 5: 14-15).
