The Anointing of the Sick
By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them and indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.

HOSPITAL VISITS: If you are a parishioner at Holy Family and one of your loved ones is admitted to the hospital and would like a visit from Fr. Patrick please, please call the office and let us know. We are told frequently that a parishioner was hospitalized and wasn’t seen by Fr. Patrick. Father is more than willing to make hospital visits as long as you call the office and let us know. We also have Father Vincent who is the official hospital chaplain for our area available at any time for hospital visits.
