Sacrament of Healing – Friday, April 21
On Friday, April 21st during our 9:30 a.m. liturgy, the Sacrament of Anointing will be offered for all those who wish to be anointed. The ritual of the church provides a wonderful sacrament for the strengthening and healing of mind, body and spirit. Commonly referred to as the “sacrament of healing” or the “sacrament of anointing”, the anointing with blessed oil brings a renewed sense of God’s abundant care and mercy.
* The Sacrament of Anointing is not to be confused with the “Last Rites” which are celebrated just prior to one’s death. The “Last Rites” consists of a much fuller celebration which includes the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Reception of Holy Communion.
