Anointing of the Sick

This sacrament may take several forms:

  • The priest could go to the home of the person to be anointed. The participation of family and friends should be strongly encouraged to witness the ecclesial character of the sacrament
  • The parish could invite the sick person to participate in a scheduled weekday or Sunday Eucharist along with family and friends
  • Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, such as hospice facilities, could schedule communal anointing liturgies in their institutional calendars.

Please contact the Parish at 781-488-5444 for information on how to make arrangements to receive this sacrament.
