The communal celebration of the Sacrament of Anointing will once again be offered on Friday, September 7, 2018 within the context of the 9:30 a.m. morning mass.
The ritual of the church provides a wonderful sacrament for the strengthening and healing of mind, body and spirit. Commonly referred to as the “sacrament of healing” or the “sacrament of anointing”, the anointing with blessed oil blessed at the Chrism Mass, brings a renewed sense of God’s abundant care and mercy. If you are someone you know would benefit from the celebration of this sacrament, please invite them to come and receive this special gift of God.
* The Sacrament of Anointing is not to be confused with the “Last Rites” which are celebrated just prior to one’s death. The “Last Rites” consists of a much fuller celebration which includes the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Reception of Holy Communion.
