This booklet describes the sacraments of The Christian Community for those who seem to be near death, as well as the rituals which can be held for a person who has died.

The Sacramental Consultation is a personal consultation with the priest that has a sacramental conclusion. Holy Communion can be received at the bedside. These can be of help for someone nearing the threshold of death before receiving the Anointing.

After death there is a funeral in two parts, and the Act of Consecration of Man for the Dead can be held on a following Saturday. This is the regular Communion Service with special prayers to help the deceased.


Born in Scotland, John Baum is a priest in the Christian Community in Oslo, Norway.
