Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of Prayer and Sacred Oil
The church encourages all who are ill, about to undergo surgery, or confined to their home due to illness to be prayed over and anointed with sacred oil. This can take place at a parish Mass, in the home or in the hospital.
It is not necessary to wait for the last moment for yourself or a loved one to be anointed and to speak with a priest. Anointing of the Sick is available upon request.
Please notify the Parish Office in case of hospitalization.
“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”
