ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Anointing of the Sick is administered to any baptized Catholic person who is seriously ill or in danger of death (CCC 1513), and can only be administered by a priest.

MARRIAGE

Matrimony is the sacrament in the Catholic Church by which “a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life” (CCC 1601). With the blessing of God and the Church – in the presence of family and friends – a couple who enters into marriage celebrates a union of love that is oriented toward each other’s good and towards procreation.
