Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick will be offered after all Masses on May 25-26. After the final song, those who would like to receive this healing sacrament should be seated in the front pews of church. This sacrament is not just for people who are dying. The sacrament of the sick is a special sacrament to pray for anyone who is seriously sick physically, mentally, or spiritually. Please encourage those you know who are sick to come and receive this sacrament.
