Anointing of the Sick

Priests care for us when we are physically ill. They do this through the sacrament known as the Anointing of the Sick. The Bible instructs us, "Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray... Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters [priests] of the Church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven" (Jas 5:14-15).

Anointing of the sick not only helps us endure illness, but it cleanses our souls and helps prepare us to meet God. The healing presence of God is available upon request. If you are seriously ill or are preparing to enter the hospital for surgery, please call the Parish Center and make arrangements to celebrate the Sacrament of the Sick.       

If you or someone you know is seriously ill at home or in the hospital, one of the priests will bring the Eucharist and administer the Anointing of the Sick. Please call the Parish Center at (847) 234-0205 to make arrangements.
