“Are any among you sick? They should send for the church elders, who will pray for them and rub olive oil on them in the name of the Lord... " (James 5:14-16)
No longer reserved only for those near death, the purpose of this sacrament is to bring all the support and encouragement of the Church to any person seriously impaired by illness or old age, having a chronic serious condition, or is facing surgery, and to help that person put the challenge of suffering into the perspective of Christ's death and resurrection. To that end, Sacred Heart offers this sacrament in a communal environment on a quarterly basis to anyone who feels in need of the Lord’s healing. The Sacrament will be offered on June 6 after the 5:30pm Mass.
