Last Rites and
Anointing of the Sick
WHO SHOULD RECEIVE THESE SACRAMENTS?
While the sacraments that are typically called "Last Rites" are important in helping the dying soul in preparing for death, one does not need to be in the active stage of dying to receive the important sacraments of confession, Eucharist, and anointing of the sick.
If one is in hospice, about to undergo a major surgery, homebound, or suffering from an illness, then it is important to request these sacraments at the frequency needed.
HOW TO RECEIVE LAST RIGHTS OR
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
Please contact the St. Rita Parish Office to inquire about receiving last rites or anointing of the sick for you or a loved one.
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
Outside normal parish hours please call St Rita’s Parish at (414) 541-7515 and leave a voicemail with contact information and details of the location. Even if away from parish, the priests will receive an email of the voicemail and will get back to you as soon as possible.
