Anointing of the Sick
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is the proper sacrament for those Catholics who have attained the use of reason and whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age. Through this sacrament, the Church comforts and supports the person who is suffering and continues the healing ministry of Christ. Only a priest or bishop can administer sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.
