Anointing of the Sick

The sacrament of anointing of the sick is celebrated when a Christian’s health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age.  Through anointing with the blessed oil of the sick, the Church supports those who struggle against illness or injury and continues the healing work of  Christ.  The anointing is intended to bring hope and comfort to those anointed and, to the gathered assembly of family and friends, a spirit of support and sharing in the sufferings of their sisters and brothers.

The anointing may be celebrated with in Mass or outside Mass.  At Holy Spirit, we celebrate the anointing of the sick at our Healing Mass on the first weekend of the month on a rotating basis.  Please check the calendar.  Anointings are also celebrated outside Mass upon request.  Please call Parish Office at 661-0644.

Note: If you are in the hospital or are struggling with illness or injury and would like a visit from Fr. Mischler, please call Parish Office at 661-0644.
