The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness or if entering hospital. It is not only for those who are at the point of death. It is fitting to receive this sacrament when someone begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age. If the person who was anointed recovers, they can receive this sacrament again if the need arises, as noted above.
Please contact the office, any time.
Couples planning marriage should contact the Parish Priest one year prior to the proposed wedding date.

The Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation for Adults are normally celebrated at the Easter Vigil. The program begins in September.
