Anointing of the Sick

By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them and indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God
by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ. Catechism of the Catholic Church 1499
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is always available for anyone who is not only in danger of death but for those who are seriously ill, for anyone preparing for surgery or a medical procedure and for those who are aged or infirmed. The sacrament may be received in church, in the home, at the hospital, or wherever circumstances dictate.

Please call the parish office at 304-623-2334 or in case of emergency call Fr. Kent at 304-374-2115 to make arrangements
for the celebration of this sacrament of healing. In the case of an emergency, please let us know in a timely manner. We will need time to get in touch with Fr. and time for his travel to the destination of need.
