“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” James 4: 14-15
The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is for the healing and spiritual strengthening of those who are impaired by sickness or old age as well as for the sick, and not only the dying, so please request the sacrament when illness is discovered or advances to another serious stage. The presence of loved ones and friends who pray along with the priest is important at the anointing.
To schedule an anointing, please call the parish office at 313-884-5554.
