Anointing of the Sick

“Christ’s compassion toward the sick and his many healings of every kind of infirmity are a resplendent sign that ‘God has visited his people’ (Lk 7:16) and that the Kingdom of God is close at hand. Jesus has the power not only to heal, but also to forgive sins (Mk 2:5-12); he has come to heal the whole man, soul and body; he is the physician the sick have need of” (CCC, 1503)

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick (formerly called Extreme Unction) is not just for the dying, but for anyone who is seriously ill. In case of need, please contact the parish office to set up an appointment. (510)-526-4811.

Anointing of the sick is offered at each Mass on the 5th Sunday of the month. The next Anointing of the Sick will occur on Dec 30/31.
