By the sacred Anointing of the Sick and the prayer of the priests, the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that He may raise them up and save them. And, indeed, she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.

First Friday Visits
Each first Friday of the month, in honour of the Sacred Heart, the priests of the parish bring the Blessed Sacrament to the sick and housebound, and are available for Confessions and the Anointing of the Sick. If you would like to be added to this list, or know of anyone who would, please contact the priest on duty or one of the priests of the parish.
The ministration known as the Last Rites in the Catholic Church does not constitute a distinct sacrament in itself. It is rather a set of sacraments given to people who are extremely ill and believed to be near death. These are the sacraments of Anointing of the Sick (which, in spite of not being reserved for the dying, is sometimes mistakenly supposed to be what is meant by “the Last Rites”), Penance and the Eucharist. If all three are administered immediately one after another, the normal order of administration is: first Penance then Anointing, then Viaticum.
