Anointing of the Sick
The Sacrament 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).
All seriously ill persons, or those awaiting surgery should celebrate the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Those who wish to receive this Sacrament, are asked to call the parish office (705-682-4683) to arrange this or speak to Pastoral Care Staff in Hospitals or Nursing Homes.
