Sacrament of the Sick and Dying
Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone in good Spirits? He should sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters[priests] of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and this prayer of faith will same same the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. (James 5: 1315)
The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is for the healing and spiritual strengthening of those who are impaired by sickness or old age. A person who is to undergo surgery may also be anointed. This sacrament is for the sick, and not only the dying, so please request the sacrament when illness is discovered. The presence of loved ones and friends who pray along with the priest is important at the anointing.
If you are ill or planning to enter the hospital and wish to be anointed, please call your own parish office and make an appointment for anointing before you enter the hospital.
At Catholic hospitals, please register as a Catholic and notify the Spiritual Care Department;
At Commercial Hospitals, please register as a Catholic (so the Catholic chaplain will know you are there);
At Denominational Hospitals, please register as a Catholic and ask the Pastoral Care Department to notify the Catholic chaplain.
