Healing Masses

JesusHealingDid you know that we have a Healing Mass at 9:30 on the first Friday of every month?  (With some changes for holidays.)  February’s will be on Friday, February 6.  If a funeral happens to get scheduled at the same time, the anointing will take place after the funeral Mass.

After the homily, those to be anointed will be asked to come up around the altar and sit/stand. Hands will be laid upon them with prayer and each will be anointed by the priest.

If you are infirm because of age or chronic serious illness, facing medical procedures (e.g. surgery, chemotherapy, tests) or suffering severe mental or emotional stress, you should be anointed. The illness should be of a serious nature but not necessarily life-threatening.

You are encouraged to come as often as you feel the need for the Sacrament.

Everyone is invited to be present at the Anointing Mass to welcome and pray for the sick.
