Anointing of the Sick

About the Sacrament

Anointing of the Sick is one of the two Sacraments of Healing. This sacrament’s name has changed over time. It was once called Extreme Unction, which means “the last anointing,” and has been referred to as part of the “last rites.” The Church now refers to it as “the anointing of the sick,” (CCC 1511). It is a powerful and effective sign of Jesus’ presence that brings strength and healing to the sick, the elderly and the dying.
