Anointing of the Sick

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” (James 5:14).

The Sacrament is administered on the first Friday of the month during our 12:00 pm Mass or, by appointment with a priest at any time. All who are sick or suffering are invited to receive anointing. 

The Anointing of the Sick is the Sacrament that is received by those who are ill or suffering. By the sacred anointing and the prayer of the priest, the whole Church commends those who are sick to Christ. The sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength, faith, peace, and courage, and his or her suffering is united with the suffering of Christ for the building up of the Church (Catechism of the Catholic Church nos.1520-23).

For after-hour emergencies, please call the parish office at 770-394-3896 and follow the prompts to contact a priest. (Please select option 1.)
