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.
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.
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.
