This is a ministry of comfort. Through Anointing, the sick are reminded that Christ and the Church are in communion with their suffering. The Holy Spirit shares the blessings of health, trust in God, and strength against temptation.
If you or someone in your family is seriously ill or going to have surgery, call the Parish Office at 262-626-2860. As minister of this sacrament, the priest will lay hands on the head of the sick person, pray, and anoint the sick with oil specially blessed for this occasion.
