Individuals who are planning to enter the hospital are particularly encouraged to receive the sacrament before their admission by calling the parish office. Pastoral staff members and volunteers will visit those who are in the hospital, nursing home, or confined to their own home.

Please notify the parish office at 313-383-8514 if you or a loved one desires a pastoral visit.


Anointing of the Sick is one of the two Sacraments of Healing. This sacrament is a powerful and effective sign of Jesus’ presence that brings strength and healing to the sick, the elderly and the dying. The celebration of this sacrament can help the sick get well again. When that does not happen, the sacrament helps the sick face their illness with faith and trust. It also helps dying people continue their faith journey to God in heaven.
