If a sick person who received this anointing recovers his health, he can in the case of another grave illness receive this sacrament again. If during the same illness the person’s condition becomes more serious, the sacrament may be repeated. It is fitting to receive the Anointing of the Sick just prior to a serious operation. The same holds for the elderly whose frailty becomes more pronounced. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1515).
Only priests can administer the sacrament of anointing.
Please call the office so that one of our priests may visit the sick person and administer this sacrament.
If a family member or parishioner you know is unable to come to church due to illness or being homebound, please call the office, 305-444-8363, and a Eucharistic minister will bring him/her communion.
