Anointing of the Sick

“This sacrament gives the grace of the Holy Spirit to those who are sick: by this grace the whole person is helped and saved, sustained by trust in God, and strengthened against the temptations of the Evil One and against anxiety over death. Thus the sick person is able not only to bear suffering bravely, but also to fight against it.” (General Introduction, Pastoral Care of the Sick, #6).

Communal anointing of the sick is celebrated annually at the Cathedral.
