Sacrament of Anointing
The Anointing of the Sick was instituted by Christ our Lord as a true and proper sacrament of the New Testament (as alluded to by Mark in James 5:14-15).
The Anointing of the Sick provides for special graces from God that comfort and heal persons who are seriously ill and in danger of death. This sacrament provides courage, strength, and peace in the face of illness.
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick provides physical and/or spiritual healing according to God’s will, and helps the sick person to trust in God no matter what happens, pouring out consolation and hope.
If you or someone you know needs the Sacrament of Anointing, you may call the office for an appointment.
