Anointing of the Sick
to the Passion and death of Christ (CCC 1499).
Receiving the Sacrament
Anyone may receive the sacrament of the anointing of the sick at any time. There are opportunities to receive the sacrament after Mass during the year; dates will be announced.
Those suffering a serious illness or facing surgery are especially encouraged to receive this sacrament; it is not required that death be imminent. Viaticum is the name that refers to the final reception of Eucharist by those who are near death. It is often celebrated in conjunction with the anointing of the sick.
Contact the parish office 859-623-2989 to make arrangements for a priest to administer the sacrament.
