"By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed She exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ." 
​--Catechism of the Catholic Church

This sacrament is intended for the strengthening and healing of those who are ill, elderly or about to undergo an operation. It is a normal part of Catholic life: not just for the dying, but for anyone who is seriously ill. It may be received when a person is at home or in the hospital.

​Please call the church any time, day or night.  After business hours, call the emergency phone at  903-407-1959 if you or a loved one wish to receive this sacrament.
