Anointing of the Sick
The Catechism of the Catholic Church’s section on the Anointing of the Sick defines the purpose of the sacrament as “the conferral of a special grace on the Christian experiencing the difficulties inherent in the condition of grave illness or old age.” (Catechism, 1527)
Once or twice each year at College Church, a communal celebration of the Anointing of the Sick is held during Mass. Please consult the parish calendar for scheduled dates.
But any time an individual is in need of receiving the Sacrament, one need only call the parish to make a request.
