The Sacrament of the Anointing is a healing sacrament for those who are seriously ill either physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. It is also appropriate for those who are anticipating surgery, having serious medical treatment such as radiation or chemotherapy, or those 70 years of age or over to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing.
Years ago this Sacrament was called Extreme Unction or referred to as The Last Rites and many felt that meant this Sacrament was given only when people were close to death which is inaccurate.
All are welcome to participate in the Mass of Anointing to pray for those who meet with the above mentioned “symptoms” and will be anointed in this healing sacrament by Fr. Gerard.
NOTE: NO 8:00am Mass
