Anointing of the Sick

The Gospels tell us that Jesus healed the sick and the suffering numerous times in his public ministry. In the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, Jesus, through the ministry of his priests brings spiritual, emotional and at times physical healing to us today. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is available to all who have serious health conditions and to those who are preparing for surgery. The elderly may receive the sacrament if they are in a weak condition even though no serious illness is present. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick unites the sick person to the passion of Christ thereby giving the sick person the strength, peace and courage to endure in a Christian manner any illness they may be experiencing.

Opportunity to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is available on request. Please call the parish office at 440-238-1770. Also a Mass of Anointing of the Sick is offered once each quarter.
