Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick – Through the sacrament of anointing, Christ strengthens the faithful who are afflicted by illness, providing them with the strongest means of support. Jesus showed great concern for the bodily and spiritual welfare of the sick and commanded his followers to do the same. The celebration of this sacrament is an opportunity for the deepening of the faith of the community who are able to witness the faith and devotion of those being anointed.
We have a communal celebration of this sacrament at the weekend liturgies in the spring and in the fall. If you would like to be anointed before entering the hospital or if you are homebound, please call the parish office to arrange for Father to anoint you.
