Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is for any member of the faithful in need of spiritual, physical or emotional healing. Once referred to as “last rites,” this anointing is recommended when death is imminent. This Sacrament is also a “Sacrament of Healing” and can be administered before surgery or because of grave illness. The Sacrament is administered by a priest.

Please contact the parish office at (570) 374-4113 to let us know that you are or will be in the hospital – or ask your family or neighbors to contact us. We want to visit and pray with and for you, especially while you are unable to join us for Mass. Please inform us so that your parish family may offer their spiritual support to you and your family.
