Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick is the proper sacrament for Christians whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age. It gives them a special grace of the Holy Spirit, strengthening them spiritually and physically against the effects of illness. 

For normal circumstances (i.e. not the exceptional or emergency situations triggered by sudden illness, accident, or some other cause placing one of the faithful in the proximate or immediate danger of death), the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is offered quarterly during Saturday 8:30 am daily Mass in the Chapel.

 

If anointing is needed before the next scheduled quarterly Mass, e.g. a surgery, where a serious illness is the reason for the surgery, chemotherapy, radiation treatment, etc., call the parish office at 972-712-2645, to arrange to come to the parish for a priest to administer the sacrament, likely before or after one of the regularly scheduled Masses. If the sick person, due to their condition, is unable to travel to the parish, they, a family member, guardian, or caregiver should call the parish office at 972-712-2645, to arrange for a priest to visit the sick person to administer the sacrament. For emergency situations, where the person is in proximate or immediate danger of death, a family member, guardian, or caregiver should call the parish number at 972-712-26450 to request a visit as soon as possible.
