Anointing of the Sick
The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is meant to bring consolation to those who are ill. We celebrate a communal Anointing every year in the month of October. Individual anointings are celebrated as needed. When someone is seriously ill or going into surgery, please contact one of the priests at the rectory at 773.472.3711. You can be anointed at home, in the hospital or in church. Please do not wait until a person is unconscious to arrange an Anointing. If possible, please arrange for family members to be present for an Anointing.
