By the sacred Anointing of the Sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that He may raise them up and save them. And indeed He exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ. CCC 1499 Individuals who are of the age of reason and who suffer from grave illness or old age may receive this sacrament.

Church of the Magdalen offers Anointing of the Sick during the 5:30 p.m. Mass on the first Wednesday of the month. This sacrament may also be celebrated at any time it can be arranged with the parish priests. Most hospitals in Wichita have Catholic priests assigned as chaplains for the pastoral care of patients. If you have questions about whether you should receive the Anointing of the Sick, please call the Parish Office at 316-634-2315.
