Anointing of the Sick


Baptismal call to care for the sick

Saint Mary’s takes seriously our baptismal call to care for the sick. 

We work to provide a comprehensive ministry to the sick, the homebound and their families.

Lay ministers will bring Holy Communion to the homebound on a weekly basis. Please call the Parish Office.

Prayer Blankets are available to those who are sick. Please call the Parish Office. Prayer Blankets


The Sacrament of Anointing is extended to those who are experiencing physical, emotional or spiritual challenge.  In this sacrament, the priest lays hands on the one requesting healing, prays over them in the faith of the Church, and anoints them with oil blessed by the bishop.


Please request the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick whenever there is a need by calling the Parish Office (219-663-0044).
