Anointing of the Sick

holy-oils“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord…” (Jas 5:14)

The Anointing of the Sick brings spiritual, and sometimes physical, strength during an illness or near the time of death.
The Catechism says, “The anointing of the sick is not a sacrament for those only who are at the point of death. Hence, as soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age, the fitting time for him to receive this sacrament has certainly already arrived” (CCC 1514).

If you, or someone you know wishes to be anointed, please call the parish office at (519) 742-5061..
