Anointing of the Sick
SACRAMENT OF ANOINTING
One of the many mysteries in our Christian life is illness, hurt, and pain; how to combine God’s love towards his creatures and the fact that many times we fall sick, sometimes gravelly, is, to say the least, a challenge to our faith. In our Catholic Tradition one of the seven sacraments deals with that reality: the Sacrament of Anointing of the sick. From the very beginning, as we read in James 5:14-
The Sacrament of Anointing is for any Catholic who is seriously ill or facing serious surgery or treatment; it can be received as many times as one is seriously ill –a serious illness is not the influenza or a tooth ache! -
We will have a communal / bilingual celebration of this sacrament on Sunday June 1st. at 5:00 pm. If you or someone you know needs this Sacrament, we encourage you to come. At the same time, do contact the Ministry of the Sick group if interested in a fellow parishioner go, visit and pray with and for the sick person.
