Anointing of the Sick
This is the proper name for what is sometimes mistakenly called “Last Rites” or “Extreme Unction.” It is meant for anyone who has a serious illness, is facing surgery, or even is dealing with the effects of old age. It should not be limited to the dying. As the Letter of James says clearly, “Are there any who are sick among you? Let them send for the priests of the Church, and let the priests pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord...” It is a sacrament of healing for spirit, mind and often body. It is administered anytime on request.
Please contact Deacon James Collins at (843) 902-4833 if you have a family member or friend in the hospital who would like to receive the Sacraments. In the event of a medical or pastoral emergency requiring an immediate response, please call Our Lady Star of the Sea at (843) 249-2356.
