communion/sick call sets

In the Catholic Church there as always been a desire for the aged, the very sick, and the dying to receive the Sacrament of the Sick, formerly known more commonly as Extreme Unction or the Last Rites. Special emphasis has always been on the dying. Until recently most people died at home rather than in a medical facility, and Catholic families were urged to be prepared for the coming of a priest to give the "Last Rites" for a dying loved one. The easiest way to do this was to have a manufactured "sick call" set that contained objects useful in the administration of the sacrament and convenient for the priest, who would always with him the Oleum Infirmorum (Oil of the Sick) and Communion, but not necessarily other things that are helpful and meaningful.

A home/visiting communion set is a vital piece of kit that is used widely by the clergy and in many denominations. There are many circumstances that it could be used, for example in a hospital, a care home or even on the battlefield. Holy Communion is therefore available to those that cannot attend the place of worship.

 

What is a communion set also called?  Other names are Sick Call Sets, Mass Kits, Traveling Communion Sets and Holy Communion Sets. 

 

A sick call set, specifically, is a collection of objects used in the visitation of someone who is sick (for Confession and the reception of Holy Communion), or for the Sacrament of the Sick (aka Extreme Unction or the Last Rites), which includes the Holy Anointing.
