Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick
The Sacrament of the Sick is a healing Sacrament of the Church. Anyone who is sick or elderly and in need of physical or emotional healing can come to our Healing Mass which is celebrated on the first Saturday of each month at 11:30 a.m. Within this Mass we will communally celebrate the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Those being anointed should sit in the front pews of the church. If you wish to be anointed and are not able to come to this 1st Saturday Mass, please call the secretary (561-5954 x2101) and let her know that you would like one of our priests to make a home visit.
Those who would like to receive the Sacrament before a hospital stay or surgery are invited to call the parish office to make arrangements. The Sacrament is also available to those who may be near death. Please inform the parish office when a friend or relative from the parish enters or leaves the hospital. The parish bulletin has a section for names of people who are sick to notify the entire parish to pray.
