Learn More about it

The Anointing of the Sick is a remarkable sign of God’s great love for us. In his merciful efforts to bring us safely to Himself in Heaven, God seems to have gone to the very limit.  As with other Sacraments,  the Anointing of the Sick allows for the conferral of God’s Grace.

The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness. Anyone in ‘serious illness’, those who are sick, in advanced years, or anyone prior to surgery can receive the Sacrament of the Sick. It is NOT only for when a person is in “danger of death”.


 If you or a family member is hospitalized or in need of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, please contact the Parish Office at 601-467-5620.
For an after-hours emergency, please call 601-467-7660.
