Sick call sets are used when a priest comes to someone's home to administer the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. In the recent past it was a tradition for Catholic families to own one, and this beautiful tradition is making a comeback. They are called "Sick Call" sets due to the fact that a priest is coming to "call." The Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament that can be administered to the elderly, the very ill, the dying, or those preparing to undergo a surgery or procedure of some kind. Each sick call set includes important items that a priest will need when he administers the sacrament. When not in use, the crucifix containing these items can be hung inside the home, as an inspiration and a prayerful reminder of the healing power of Christ.
