ANOINTING OF THE SICK

ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Sunday, February 11th is World Day of Prayer for the Sick.  We will offer the Sacrament of the Anointing of the sick on Saturday the 10th, 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.

Therefore, as part of an ongoing effort to better provide for the needs of our parishioners, the Sacrament of the sick will be offered the second Saturday of every month following the 4:30 pm Mass.
