Sacrament of The Anointing of The Sick
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick holds a profound place in our faith, offering God’s healing grace and comfort to those who are facing illness or experiencing the frailty of old age. At St. Peter & St. Mary’s Church, we embrace the significance of this sacrament and provide opportunities for its administration in different settings.
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is administered in hospitals and other health care facilities, ensuring that those who are unable to attend church services can still receive the blessings and prayers of the Church. Our compassionate priests visit these facilities, bringing the sacramental presence of Christ’s healing love to those in need.
Celebrated Twice a Year
Twice each year, we hold a communal celebration of the Anointing of the Sick during Mass in the school gymnasium. This special gathering provides an opportunity for the faith community to come together, pray, and support those who are facing illness or physical challenges. It is a time of communal prayer, hope, and the assurance of God’s presence and care.
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick brings not only physical healing but also spiritual strength, forgiveness, and comfort. It is a reminder that, in times of illness or suffering, we are not alone but surrounded by the love and prayers of our faith community.
