While my dear, late mother was always a faithful Catholic, my late father left the Faith — for reasons unknown to all in my family. While he supported my mother’s decision to send all of us through 12 years of Catholic schooling never participated in any of our religious training at home.

However, he carried a St. Christopher medal in his car and one in his wallet. :) Also, much to our happy surprise, he asked for a priest and received the Last Rites before he died. (Yeah, I know we’re not supposed to call them “Last Rites” anymore....)

Was he also baptized then and received the Eucharist and Confirmation on his deathbed?

Our priest has even validated/performed a wedding for someone who was dying.
