Pastoral Care

The Sick and the Dying

In the gospels, Christ visits the sick, offering mercy, comfort, and healing. When one member of Christ's Body is afflicted, the whole Church suffers.


Priests and deacons are called to visit the sick and the dying, bringing comfort and grace through the sacraments. The lay faithful are also called to perform works of mercy such as visiting the sick and comforting the dying.


The Sacraments of Healing

Christ has the power to heal both body and spirit. He entrusted to his Church the Sacraments of Healing: Penance and Reconciliation and the Anointing of the Sick. These sacraments confer grace, consolation, and strength.
