Sacraments of Healing

Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick is one of the two Sacraments of Healing; the other is Reconciliation. This sacrament is a powerful and effective sign of Jesus’ presence that brings strength and healing to the sick, the elderly and the dying.


The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Penance or Confession, is that moment of grace whereby one receives the forgiveness for sin won by Jesus Christ on the cross. This sacrament is celebrated to renew the life of grace begun in baptism.
