The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, which was formerly known as “the last rites” or “extreme unction,” is an action of the Church in which the care and concern of Jesus for the sick may be experienced by the one who is ill. The sacrament is not restricted to persons who are close to death, and it can be given more than one time.

STM occasionally offers the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick during Sunday Eucharist. More often the sacrament is offered by appointment. Persons desiring the sacrament should call the parish offices at 404-378-4588.
