Anointing of the Sick brings Jesus healing, comfort, and strength to those who are seriously ill, elderly, or in danger of death. Communal Healing Liturgies are held twice a year, during the spring and fall.
Call Fr. William at (925) 939-7911 Ext. 105, for the dates and times.
Additional Healing Services:
- The sacrament is available to people who are ill, elderly or who are going to have surgery of some kind. It is intended to be a support and strength to them through their painful times. No longer reserved only for the dying, the sacrament is a spiritual gift available for the asking.
- Contact the Pastoral Office at (925) 939-7911 x0.
- Eucharist to the sick and shut-in.
Trained ministers go to the hospital daily to pray and give communion to the sick. Volunteer ministers go on a regular basis to people in Board and Care Homes, Convalescent Homes and to those unable to come to Mass.
- Bereavement sessions are available for grieving people.
Those saddened by the death of a loved one need to give themselves time to work through their grieving. Bereavement Companions are available during the sessions to accompany those in mourning.
