The Sacrament of Anointing
From the earliest of times the Church showed by laying on of hands and anointing with oil that Jesus Christ was present to the sick among them, as he has been to so many who were sick during his ministry on earth.
The Anointing of the Sick remains central to the church’s pastoral care of the sick. Through faith it sustains those who are in the midst of their illness. The ritual celebration of this sacrament gathers in and focuses the many ways in which God’s healing love is provided by the community through their concern, prayer, visits and eucharistic ministry.
The Sacrament of Anointing is celebrated at 11:30am on Tuesday of every second month.
