Anointing of the Sick

There is a long tradition in the church of anointing with sacred oil when people are sick or dying. The Sacrament of Anointing gives us grace for illness or old age.

Every Fall, the frail elderly and those whose health is seriously impaired are invited to join the faith community at a weekday morning Mass of Anointing followed by a light luncheon. BeFrienders are on hand and Prayer Shawls are available.

Throughout the year, those who are seriously ill or anticipate surgery and wish to be anointed can make arrangements by calling the Parish Office.
