SACRAMENT OF ANOINTING OF THE SICK

According to the Pastoral Care of the Sick (the instruction for ministry to the sick and dying, and approved by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, and confirmed by the Apostolic See), the sacrament of the Anointing is "the proper sacrament for Christians whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age." It should be celebrated at the beginning of a serious illness or before surgery. The celebration of this sacrament is meant to take place "while the sick person is capable of active participation." The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing and can only be administered by a priest or bishop. Twice a year, St. Therese of Lisieux Parish celebrates this sacrament in the contact of the Eucharist (another healing sacrament). Even though we all suffer from various troubles and trial, this sacrament is intended for those who are "seriously impaired by sickness or old age" Please call 517.487.3749 for further questions or to make a personal appointment.
