Anointing of the Sick
"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." (CCC 1499)
Scheduling an Anointing
A family member should contact Patty at Parish Center (724-327-0647) in case of serious illness, impending surgery or in an emergency. Also, this sacrament is celebrated at least twice a year during one of the weekend Masses.
Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins he will be forgiven. -James 5:14-15
