MYSTERY OF ANOINTING OF THE SICK

SOURCE: EPARCHY.ORG

                   
  • It is the responsibility of the faithful to notify the pastor of an illness of a parishioner.
  • Even if the infirm parishioner has already been anointed, it is the responsibility of the pastor to visit the sick and provide spiritual strength and consolation.
  • The only oil of the sick to be used is that which is consecrated by the Eparchial Bishop.
          

Because the Federal Privacy Act (HIPAA) will not allow us to respond if requests are made by friends or some other non-family member, it is important that the patient or a family member let the Pastor know when they are needed.

When you or a family member are hospitalized or are homebound and are in need of the Mystery of Anoiting of the Sick, please call the Parish Office at 720-833-0354.

It is also recommended that the person or family to inform the hospital or nursing home upon admission that the patient desires visits from the Church.
