Unction of the Sick- often called Last Rites

Sacramental ministry to a sick and dying Christian, may include Confession and Absolution, laying on of hands, extreme unction, (anointing) and Communion. St. John’s Pastoral Care Lay-Ministers assist the clergy in bringing the Reserved Blessed Sacrament to the sick and dying and may anoint with blessed oil. Sacramental Confession and Absolution is administered only by a Priest or Bishop.
