ANOINTING OF THE SICK

ANOINTING OF THE SICK

On Saturday, April 1, we will offer the Sacrament of the Anointing of the sick immediately following the 4:30 pm. Mass. Anyone with a serious illness or malady or facing an upcoming surgery or hospital stay is invited to come up for the anointing after Mass.

The Sacrament of the sick is not strictly for those with life threatening illnesses or those approaching death. It is a Sacrament of healing where God’s life-giving grace is freely bestowed on His sons and daughters who face serious physical and mental issues.

Normally the Sacrament of the sick will be offered the second Saturday of every month at the 4:30 pm Mass. In April we are offering it on the first Sunday, so as not to conflict with Palm Sunday services.
