POLICIES REGARDING ADMINISTRATION OF SACRAMENTS

AT SANTUARIO DE CHIMAYO

In Consultation with the Office of the Archbishop of Santa Fe concerning the administration of Sacraments at the Santuario de Chimayo, the following policies are in effect:

Concerning the ANOINTING OF THE SICK, when requested by a pilgrim or other visitor, including those from parishes within the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, they are to be informed that, in order to avoid misunderstandings and confusion,

1) The Anointing of the Sick is to be administered at one´s parish, unless one is dying.

2) If one is not registered in a parish, this is a good opportunity to do so.

The same applies to BAPTISM and CONFIRMATION.

EUCHARIST and PENANCE are allowed, even encouraged, at the Santuario.

WEDDINGS are permitted at the Santuario.

See letter from Archbishop, dated June 24, 2013, regarding WEDDINGS at the Santuario.
