Sacrament of the Sick
The Sacrament of the Sick may be administered at any time to any Catholic who is seriously ill. In the words of the Second Vatican Council: The anointing of the sick is not a sacramanet for those only who are at the point of death. Hence, as soon as any one of the faithful begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age, the fitting time for that person to receive this sacrament has certainly already arrived.
The Sacrament may be repeated at intervals during a prolonged illness, especially when the health of the sick person deteriorates. Remember, if you go into hospital it is your responsibility, or that of your family and friends, to make it known to the hospital staff that you wish to see a priest for Confession, Communion or the Sacrament of the Sick. Hospital staff will not call a priest unless specifically requested to do so.
If you are seriously ill at home, in an emergency, if Fr. Sean is not available, contact the priest in a neighbouring parish without delay.
