Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick celebrates God’s care and concern for a person who is ill and the community’s desire to support that person in his or her illness. Through the laying on of hands and anointing with oil, the community prays for the person’s healing, whether spiritual or physical.

The Anointing of the Sick should ideally be celebrated when the person who is ill is capable of participating in the sacrament, and not only reserved until the person is in danger of imminent death. Anyone over the age of reason who is afflicted with a serious or chronic illness, anyone facing surgery, or suffering from the debilitating effects of old age may be anointed.

The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is celebrated on the first Tuesday of the month at the 8:30 morning mass. To arrange to be anointed at another time, please call the parish office at 847-524-4429.
