Anointing of the Sick

Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two. . . So they went off and preached repentance. They drove out many demons, and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Mark 6: 7, 13

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, also known as Extreme Unction, allows the sick to feel peace, courage, and comfort from the Lord to face the difficulties of illness, old age, and the fear of death. One can call to receive this sacrament when frail from old age, you have a serious illness that can lead to death, a sickness which compromises your health, or an impending surgery or medical procedure, or other serious physical ailment in need of anointing.

Please contact the Parish Office if you or a loved one would like to receive the Anointing of the Sick at the church or at home (for those who are homebound). You may also approach any of the Priests after Sunday Mass. Please email Parish@svsc.info or call 212-744-2080 to set up an appointment.
