Annointing of the Sick

Annointing of the Sick

If you know you are going into the hospital, try to receive the Anointing of the Sick before you go in.  Because of emergencies in the hospital, priest chaplains are often not able to see you for anointing before surgery.  

Notify the Parish Office, 685-5083 if you are going to the hospital.  You personally must let us know that you are in the hospital.   Also make sure you are listed as a Catholic when you are admitted.  Confidentiality laws prevent the hospital from contacting your parish.  Hospital chaplains can contact us for you, but only if you request it. If a Eucharistic Minister does not visit you, check with the Spiritual Care Office to see if they know you are a Catholic.
