Anointing of the Sick
The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick gives the grace of the Holy Spirit to those who are sick. This grace helps the whole person, not only to bear the suffering but also to quiet anxiety, dissipate fear, and inspire confidence in God and acceptance of his will. Saint James assures us that the sick are to be anointed, and great care and concern should be taken to see that those of the faithful whose health is impaired by sickness or old age receive this sacrament.
Instructions for Requesting Anointing of the Sick
Saint Ann Parish offers the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick at the 8:00 am Mass on the first Saturday of the month. The parish community will keep you in prayer during the month.
