The Anointing of the Sick may be celebrated:
When a person is seriously ill
When a person is chronically ill
When a person is elderly and in a weakened condition.
If a person is sick/gets better/then gets sick again.
The Anointing of the Sick is NOT the ‘last rites’; it is no longer called Extreme
Please call the priest to anoint the sick person as soon as a serious illness occurs. Do not wait until the person is on their deathbed to call a priest.
