Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick is the Lord's compassion for the sick.  The sacrament confers grace, strengthens the sick person with courage and peace to endure the sufferings caused by disease or old age and forgives all sins for which the sick person has true sorrow but is unable to confess.  The sacrament also prepares the sick person for eternal life.

Those who are in danger of death from sickness or old age should receive this sacrament.  Also anyone scheduled for surgery.  You may receive the Anointing of the Sick again if you recover and become sick again, or if your illness worsens.

Please contact the Parish Office if you or a friend or relative needs to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick at 610-586-1225 or via email at office@stgabrielnorwood.org.
