Anointing of the Sick

“By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1499).

Illness is very challenging for both the ones suffering and those who care and love form them. Through the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, the Church offers God’s healing, both spiritual and physical, for those in need.

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick can be scheduled by contacting Debby Leonardo.
