Anointing of the Sick
The Sacrament of Anointing was previously known as “Extreme Unction” or “Last Rites”.
Federal Privacy Regulation HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) prohibits all hospitals from informing churches of a patient’s presence unless the patient gives permission for the hospital to do so.
If you are admitted to a hospital and would like a member of the clergy or a Eucharistic Minister to visit you, please notify the hospital or call the
Parish Office at (562) 296-9000.
"Is there someone sick among you?
Let them send for a priest, anointing them in the name of the Lord..."
