ANOINTING & HOME COMMUNION
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
The Anointing of the Sick is not just for those who are at their point of death, but is also for healing and restoration to health. It can be administered to a member of the faithful who, after having reached the use of reason, begins to be in danger due to sickness or old age.
This sacrament can be repeated whenever the sick person again falls into a serious sickness after convalescence or whenever a more serious crisis develops during the same sickness. It is also advisable to have the Anointing performed before a major surgery where a dangerous illness necessitates it.
Please contact the Parish Office or email any of the priests for an appointment. Alternatively, you may approach a priest after Mass.
COMMUNION FOR THE SICK AND HOMEBOUND
For the sick and/or elderly who are hospitalised or homebound, it is most beneficial to have the Holy Eucharist brought to them.
As part of pastoral care of our parishioners, communion ministers bring Holy Communion to them as a sign of support and concern shown by the parish community for its members who cannot be present at the Eucharistic celebration.
Holy Communion is brought from the community’s celebration of Eucharist in the church to the person in the hospital or at home. If you have family members who are homebound or hospitalised, please contact our Parish Office’s front desk to request for Holy Communion to be brought to them. If the Sacrament of Anointing is needed, please also contact the Parish Office or email any of our parish priests for an appointment.
