anointing of the sick
Anointing of the Sick is one of the two Sacraments of Healing. This sacrament’s name has changed over time. It was once called Extreme Unction, which means “the last anointing,” and has been referred to as part of the “last rites.” The Church now refers to it as "Anointing of the Sick.” Through this Sacrament, Jesus gives grace, strength and healing to the sick, the elderly and the dying. If you or a loved one is sick or approaching surgery, call the parish office at 740-622-3533 to set up a time to receive the Sacrament.
