Communal Anointing of the Sick at Mass

Posted on March 10, 2015

Communal Anointing of the Sick at Mass – On Saturday, March 21 at 8 am, we provide you with the opportunity to share in the Sacrament of the Sick.  This is a celebration for all who are weakened by illness of mind, body or spirit. We are reminded that Sacraments are celebrations for the whole Christian community. Anointing is not just for those at the point of death, but also for those “in danger of death from sickness or old age”…for those aged in “a weakened condition even though no dangerous illness is present” and for those “before surgery when a dangerous illness is the reason for the intervention” (Catechism of the Catholic Church). If you know of someone who is in need of the sacrament, and may not receive our bulletin, remind them of this opportunity.
