ANNOINTING OF THE SICK
The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is the second of the Sacraments of Healing. The anointing is for those who are seriously ill or in danger of death or suffering the difficulties of old age (65 years and older may receive this anointing anytime). The Sacrament may be received each time the believer falls seriously ill or an illness worsens.
The Rite of the Anointing of the Sick includes the anointing of the forehead and hands of the sick followed by liturgical prayer administered by a Priest.
"Is anyone among you suffering" He should pray. Is anyone in good spirits? He should sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. Jas 5:13-15
Anointing of the Sick is administered during the first Friday monthly Mass at St. Mary's 5pm Mass
or by appointment by calling the office.
