Holy Family occasionally offers the sacrament of the anointing of the sick after Mass. This sacrament is open to anyone with a serious physical or mental illness. Please check our calendar for these dates.
Vatican II opened the availability to the sacrament to those people, instead of only prior to death. Jesus showed a great love for the sick when he was on Earth and this sacrament continues this mission. We will publicize when this sacrament will be available.
When you have a scheduled hospital admission, contact Fr. Philip Egan in advance for this sacrament at 816-436-9200, ext. 22. Hospitals do not contact the parish due to confidentiality issues.
