“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the presbyters 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 sick man, and
the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be
forgiven” (Jas 5:14-15).
The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick has as its purpose the
conferral of a special grace on the Christian experiencing the
difficulties inherent in the condition of grave illness or old age.
The proper time for receiving this holy anointing has certainly
arrived when the believer begins to be in danger of death because of
illness or old age.
If you or a loved one is sick and wishes to receive the sacrament,
please contact the parish office as soon as possible.
