Anointing of the Sick
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick will be celebrated next weekend, November 18 and 19, at the 5:00 p.m., 8:00 a.m. and 11:15 p.m. Masses. We publicly celebrate this sacrament for those who are in need of Christ’s love to overcome their pain or isolation from pending major surgery, recovering surgery, depression, chronic conditions, cancer, life threatening illness, or if age is debilitating. The use of oil, the laying on of hands, and the ritual prayer call upon Christ’s power to heal the body as well as the Spirit. If you find yourself struggling from an ailment and you are in need of healing, come and be anointed.
