The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last sacraments one will receive. A sacrament is an outward sign established by Jesus Christ to confer inward grace. In more basic terms, it is a rite that is performed to convey God’s grace to the recipient, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
During the course of the year our parish will have a special Mass for those who desire to receive the Anointing of the Sick during Mass.
Please request the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick whenever there is a need by calling the Parish Office (219-980-9348).
If you are homebound and like to receive Communion on Sundays after the 9:00 AM Mass call the office at 219 980-9348.
