In this Sacrament, a priest anoints the sick with blessed oil to give strength, hope and healing. A new illness, fragileness or a worsening of health enables a person to receive this beautiful gift.
Twice a year, typically once in the fall and once in the spring, there is a special liturgy for all who wish to be anointed. This is an opportunity to pray with one another as a community for strength and hope.
The sick person or a caregiver can request individual anointing at other times. If you know of someone who is preparing for surgery, is suffering from a serious illness, or fragile, encourage them to celebrate the Sacrament of Healing.
