Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament by which those who are seriously ill are especially strengthened, and through which we call on God to impart comfort, protection and healing.

Anointing of the Sick is celebrated during Mass in the Church of St Patrick (Allawah St, Blacktown) on the first Saturday of each month.

Our priests will also anoint any parishioner who is seriously ill at any place or time on request.

As hospitals do not release patient information for privacy reasons, the patient or a member of their family need to contact the parish office to advise the priests that they have been admitted. The priests can then visit, and offer communion and anointing if it is desired.

Or by appointment phone 9622 9149 (St Michael’s) or 9622 1125 (St Patrick’s).
