Anointing of the Sick

Contact: The Parish Office

About the Sacrament

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.  


Annointing of the Sick at St. Paul of the Cross

This Sacrament is administered on the first Saturday of each month following the 8 a.m. Mass in the upper church. If you have a loved one who is gravely ill and would like to receive this Sacrament, please call the rectory (847) 825-7605, and a priest will visit as soon as possible.
