By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of her priests the whole Church commends the sick to the suffering and glorified Lord, asking that He may lighten their suffering and save them; she exhorts them, moreover, to contribute to the welfare of the whole people of God by associating themselves freely with the passion and death of Christ.

Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament where the Church commends those who are ill due to sickness or old age to Jesus Christ, the Divine Physician, for physical and spiritual healing.

Sts. Anne and Joachim Catholic Church assists with the spiritual care at Essentia Hospital on 32nd Ave S; the priests of the parish are willing to attend to the needs of their parishioners at any hospital or assisting living facility in Fargo/Moorhead.

If you or a family member is presently ill or dying and in need of the sacrament, contact the parish office at (701) 235-5757 or fill out the form below.
