Anointing of the Sick
The sacramental life of our Church is a great source of comfort, strength and grace. We celebrate the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick with those whose health is seriously
impaired by sickness, old age, or awaiting surgery. Through this sacrament, we support the sick in their struggle against illness and we continue Christ’s work of healing and message of hope and comfort. It is a great support for the sick to have family and friends present during this special time of prayer and anointing. Call the parish office to arrange for Anointing of the Sick. We also have a Communal Anointing of the Sick during a Saturday morning Mass in Advent and in Lent. In hospitals, a chaplain may be asked to administer this sacrament.
This Sacrament is not just for those in danger of death, but for anyone who suffers from serious or chronic physical or emotional illness or who struggles with the infirmities of age. Those scheduled for a surgery or hospital stay may request this sacrament prior to entering the hospital. Please call the office or speak to one of the priests to arrange a time.
