Annointing of the Sick

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teachs us:
“By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.”

If there is a family member who is ill, please call Father Rousseau at any time to schedule an annointing. Please try and arrange for this sacrament while the recipient is able to participate, if at all possible.
