Anointing of the Sick

This sacrament of peace and healing is available any time on request.

Please make contact with Fr Alan via the Parish Office (T: 9583 6161).

Following the renewal of the Second Vatican Council this sacrament is no longer referred to as “Extreme Unction” or “the Last Rites.” It is the Sacrament of ‘Anointing of the Sick’ and is available to anyone enduring serious illness or who has grown weaker under the burden of years.

An individual may be anointed a number of times during their lifetime, when for example, they’re enduring serious illness, when their condition declines, or prior to surgery, etc.
