Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is administered to bring spiritual and sometimes even physical strength to those who receive the sacrament.  It is not solely for those who are facing imminent death.  In fact, anyone who is facing a serious illness, a chronic illness, surgery, etc. should avail themselves of the healing power of this sacrament.

The Rite of Anointing states:  “[the faithful] should be encouraged to ask for the anointing, and, as soon as the time for anointing comes, to receive it with faith and devotion, and not misusing the sacrament by putting it off”

To request the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, please contact the Parish Office at 732-286-2222 (if after Business hours, dial the Parish Office number and press 7)
