Thursday, May 21st we will have Mass with Anointing of the Sick at 11:00am in the Church. ANYONE who is ill, facing surgery, or in old age may receive this Sacrament administered by a priest. The Sacrament of the Sick consists of laying on of hands by a priest, the prayer of absolution and healing and the anointing with oil blessed by the Bishop. The Catechism of the Catholic Church cites three main benefits of this Sacrament: first, the strength, peace, and courage to face the challenges of illness or the frailty of old age. Second, the gift of uniting oneself more closely with the Passion of Christ. Finally, participation in the Communion of Saints as the Church prays for the person and he or she in turn prays for the Church.
