Through the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, the whole Church commends those who are ill to the merciful care of our suffering and glorified Lord, that He may raise them up and save them.
Anointing is available for any Catholic suffering serious illness by contacting Holy Family Parish offices at (920) 756-2535.
Besides those in serious illness, the sacrament may be received by the elderly who have become weaker and those waiting for surgery when a serious medical condition is the reason for the operation. Sick children who have sufficient use of reason may also be helped by the celebration. Those who are unconscious or who have lost the use of reason, provided that they probably would have asked for the sacrament may receive anointing.
