Anointing of the Sick
Any parishioners suffering from a debilitating physical or emotional illness or persons who struggle with the infirmities of life brought on by the aging process are invited to celebrate the strengthening power of the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. One does not have to be in danger of death. Those scheduled for a surgery or a serious hospital stay may wish to request this sacrament prior to entering the hospital. Every First Saturday, there will be an opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Anointing at 9:00 a.m. in the St. Margaret Mary Chapel. Annually, there is an opportunity for Anointing after all the Masses the second weekend in February.
