Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.   James 5:14-15

Who can receive Anointing of the Sick?

Anointing of the Sick should be administered to anyone that begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age and also just prior to a serious operation. These, however, are not limits of the sacrament. It can be repeatedly given to someone if his/her condition becomes worse as well as for the elderly.

​If you wish to receive this sacrament for yourself or for a family member who is ill, please contact the parish office 619.582.3716 to make arrangements with a priest.
