The sacrament is not limited to those near death but to anyone who is preparing for surgery, a serious medical procedure, long-term or terminal illness, or issues related to aging. The Anointing of the Sick is a prayer of healing, not only for our physical healing, but also for spiritual health, and for strength and courage to bear the burden of illness. Persons can receive the Sacrament of Anointing more than once. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is ideally, administered in a communal celebration. Our Lady of Perpetual Help offers a Liturgical celebration for Anointing of the Sick three times a year; in the Fall, Winter and Spring.
Parishioners can request the Sacrament of Anointing for themselves or a loved one by contacting Sr. Leonita at the parish office.
Sr. Leonita or a staff member will make arrangements for one of our priests to go and administer the sacrament of anointing or set-up
an appointment to be anointed.
