Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament is NOT for those who are at the point of death. Hence, as soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age, the fitting time for them to receive this Sacrament has certainly arrived (SC73).

If a sick person who received this anointing recovers their health, they can in the case of another grave illness receive this Sacrament again. It is fitting to receive the Anointing of the Sick just prior to a serious operation. The same holds for elderly whose frailty becomes more pronounced (CCC1515).

If you, a family member or someone you know desires the Sacrament of the Sick, please call the parish office, 928-855-2685 to make the necessary arrangements.
