By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ. (CCC 1499)
Anointing of the Sick is celebrated within the Sunday weekend masses on a quarterly basis so that the entire Christian community can pray with and for those being anointed. Anointing is also available on an individual basis as the need arises.
Anointing of the Sick will be celebrated during the mass on the following weekends:
- February 26, 2017
- May 21, 2017
- August 20, 2017
