The Sacrament of Anointing supports and comforts the chronically ill, the elderly, and those in danger of dying. It is a spiritual healing that is conferred through laying on of hands and anointing with oils.
“The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick has as its purpose the conferral of a special grace on the Christian experiencing the difficulties inherent in the condition of grave illness or old age.” Catechism of the Catholic Church (1527)
Please contact the parish office if you or a family member wishes to receive this sacrament. A communal celebration of the Anointing of the Sick is held periodically at St. Thomas.
