If Someone In Your Family Becomes Seriously Ill
Please notify us (626.355.1292) as early on as possible for the Anointing of the Sick. This sacrament was never intended to be some sort of last rites, rather we should think of it as Our Lord’s special presence and companionship in this serious time of need. Anointing may take place in the home, at the hospital or medical care facility and as often as once a month.Usually we will try to offer the sacrament at a Sunday Mass quarterly. If someone should die without anointing, remember that it is like Baptism in that the desire to receive is sufficient and the Lord cares!
If You Should Experience the Loss of a Loved One
Please call us at 626.355.1292
We will assist you in making arrangements with your chosen funeral directors; refer you to our liturgy and music directors; and offer you helpful guidelines and a book that will aid in the selection of readings for the Mass or Memorial Service. We know that this can be a tough time and we want you to know that your parish is there for you.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND that since we only have one resident priest, sometimes arrangements for another priest may be needed.
