In the Church’s Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, through the ministry of the priest, it is Jesus who touches the sick to heal them from sin – and sometimes even from a physical ailment. Anointing of the Sick is available upon request. Please call the Church at 901-754-1204 ext 325.

Hospitalized Parishioners: Please contact the church when you or a loved one is hospitalized to arrange for a pastoral visit. Government regulations prohibit hospitals from informing us when someone is hospitalized.

Who should receive the Anointing of the Sick?

Anyone who is ill, about to have or has had surgery, the chronically ill, those suffering terminal or other illnesses.

When should the sacrament of the sick be administered?

“It is not necessary to wait until a person is dying before calling a priest. The Anointing of the Sick is not a sacrament for those only who are at the point of death” (CCC 1514).

I have been anointed in the past, and I am ill again. May I be anointed again?

If some time has passed and you are experiencing another illness, you may receive the sacrament again.
