Anointing of the Sick

All registered parishioners AND those Catholics living within our parish boundaries who are not registered, who are confined temporarily or permanently, may receive Anointing of the Sick. 

Individual:  please call the office to arrange for this sacrament, ideally before you are hospitalized.  If in an emergency situation, a family member can call to make arrangements. 

Communal Anointing of the Sick: is offered annually at Sacred Heart (usually in October, watch bulletin for details) and twice a year at nursing homes in the parish boundaries (watch for details at the nursing home)

 

Prayers for the sick and dying.

 

Deceased

The burial of the dead is a corporal work of mercy.  All registered parishioners AND those Catholics living within our parish boundaries who are not registered, may receive Catholic burial rites.  Catechumens, infants and children who die before baptism, non-Catholics affiliated with us or our families are also among those for whom we offer funeral rites. 

A family member of the deceased or the funeral home needs to contact Fr. Mike to arrange a funeral time. 

To purchase plots at the St. Malachy (Horicon), Immaculate Conception (Juneau), Old St. John (Township of Rubicon), St. Mary (Woodland) or St. Bartholomew (Neosho) Cemeteries, please contact the parish office.
