Anointing of the Sick

The Anointing of the Sick, or sometimes known as the Last Rites, are Catholic sacraments that bring healing and forgiveness to those who are in pain. When you or the people you love are experiencing hard times or spiritual challenges, the Church can help.

The Anointing of the Sick can be administered to any Catholic who is seriously ill and caregivers should not wait until the patient is critically ill or when death is imminent to notify a priest.

Priests are also available for home visits and prayers when the sick person is confined to bed at home.

The priests of parish are responsible for the sick within their own parish boundaries. In addition, Priests of the churches closest to the main hospitals in Singapore are usually available for any Catholic who are hospitalized and are in need of a priest’s help. They visit the hospitals on a regular basis to bring communion to the sick and if informed they will visit you.
