PARISH COMMUNAL ANOINTING OF THE SICK

On Thursday, October 12, we will celebrate the Communal Anointing of the Sick at the 6:30 pm Mass.

The anointing takes place during the Mass to emphasize the fact that it is the whole church praying for her members who are sick. It is the whole church which asks God to send His Spirit to strengthen and encourage those who are suffering from sickness of any kind.

The actual anointing will take place after the homily of the Mass, when the priest will go to each person to be anointed. The priest lays his hands on the person’s head and asks the Holy Spirit to come down upon those who are sick and to strengthen them. He then anoints each one on the forehead and on the hand saying: “Through this Holy Anointing may the Lord in His love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. And may God who frees you from sin save you and raise you up.”

WHO CAN BE ANOINTED?

Those who are now seriously ill.
Those who are temporarily ill or convalescing.
Those who are chronically ill (heart condition, asthma, arthritis, etc.).
Those who are emotionally troubled.
Those who are over 65 years of age.
Those who are facing surgery in the near future.
Sick children who have reached the age of reason.

So we will know how many to expect at this Mass, we ask that you complete the form below and either mail it to the rectory, drop it off there, or place it in the basket in the rear of church.
