The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last sacraments one will receive. A sacrament is an outward sign established by Jesus Christ to confer inward grace. In more basic terms, it is a rite that is performed to convey God's grace to the recipient, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
If you would like to request a priest to administer the anointing of the sick to you or your loved one please call this direct line 630.323.4391. The direct line is open 24/7 and you will receive a return call from one of our parish priests to schedule a visit.
