Anointing of the Sick

The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last sacraments one will receive. A sacrament is an outward sign established by Jesus Christ to confer inward grace.

If you or a loved one is in need of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick please fill out this Visitation Request Form so we can honor your request ASAP. You can also call the Rectory Office at 814-864-0622 to arrange for this Sacrament.

“Any one of you who is ill should send for the elderly of the church, and they must anoint the sick person with oil in the name of the Lord and pray over him. The prayer of faith will save the sick person and the Lord will raise him up again; and if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.”
James 5:14-15
