Anointing of the Sick

The priests of our parish attend to the sick in hospitals and at home. Many like to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick and are strengthened greatly by it. If you would like to receive this sacrament or know someone who would, please contact any of the priests or the Parish Office on: 041-9831991 or email: holyfamilyballsgrove@outlook.ie

What are the effects of this sacrament?

This sacrament confers a special grace which unites the sick person more intimately to the Passion of Christ. It gives comfort, peace, courage, and even the forgiveness of sins if the sick person is not able to make a confession. Sometimes, if it is the will of God, this sacrament even brings about the restoration of physical health. In any case this Anointing prepares the sick person for the journey to the Father’s House.
