“[Christ] is the Good Shepherd who cares for the wounded sheep and comforts the sick. He is the Good Samaritan who does not pass by the injured person at the roadside, but rather, moved by compassion, cures and attends to him.”

-Pope Francis

Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament intended to strengthen those who are being tried by serious illness.

By the sacred anointing:

  • The Church commends the ill to the suffering and glorified Lord

  • The ill freely unite themselves to the Passion of the Lord

  • The ill receive a particular gift of the Holy Spirit

  • The ill contribute to the sanctification of the Church and all people for whom the Church suffers

We offer the Anointing of the Sick on the first Sunday of each month, immediately following the 7:30am Mass. Anointing is also available by private appointment by contacting the parish office.
