Anointing of the Sick

As we know sickness and suffering are part of human life. The Catechism of the Catholic Church comments that "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." Anointing of the Sick is carried out in the Parish formally in the parish church 3 times a year and once a month in nursing homes as well as on request at other times as needed.
