Anointing of Sick

The parish priests are responsible for the sick within their own parish boundaries. In addition, Priests of the churches closest to the hospitals are also available for any hospitalized Catholic who requires a priest's attention. They make visits to the hospitals and give Holy Communion to the sick. If informed, they will also visit you.

The Anointing of the Sick can be administered to any Catholic who is seriously ill and care providers are advised not to wait until the patient is critically ill or when death is imminent.

Our Priests, assisted by the Ministry to the Sick, are also available for home visits and prayers when a sick parishioner is confined to bed at home.

In cases of emergency, when a patient urgently requires the Anointing of the Sick and a priest from the nearby church is unavailable, our Priests can be contacted anytime to administer the said sacrament.
