Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick

On the first Saturday of the month, following the 11:30am Mass the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick will be celebrated, and members of the Regina Veritatis Healing Prayer Ministry will be in church for your intercessory prayers. It is important to understand that not everyone who is ill should approach the sacrament. The Church has very strict guidelines for those who may approach the sacrament. Here are those guidelines as pointed out in the Church’s Pastoral Care of the Sick in its General Instructions:

- Great care and concern should be taken to see that those of the faithful whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age receive this sacrament.

- A sick person may be anointed before surgery whenever a serious illness is the reason for the surgery.

- Elderly people may be anointed if they have become notably weakened even though no serious illness is present.

- Sick children may be anointed if they have sufficient use of reason to be strengthened by this sacrament.

We would ask that you please keep in mind these requirements before you present yourself for the Sacrament of the Sick.

Along with the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, members of the Regina Veritatis Healing Prayer Ministry will be available for intercessory prayers. This is not just for people who are physically ill, but is for anyone who is in need of intercessory prayer. You can even stand in proxy asking for prayers for others as well. Please feel free to approach them for prayer. The Regina Veritatis Healing Ministry is also available for ongoing individual prayer.
