“Come to me, all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you.”
Everyone needs healing on some level, whether physical, emotional or spiritual. Come yourself. Bring a family member. Bring a friend whom you believe would benefit from prayers for healing. Catholics and non-Catholics are all welcome.
Prayers for healing and laying on of hands will be offered, as well as the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.
On World Day of the Sick, people across the world take the opportunity to pray for the sick and those who labor tirelessly to alleviate their pain. Pope John Paul II established the day in 1992 to urge people to pray for individuals who are ill and for their caretakers.
What is Anointing?
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is for anyone who is undergoing treatment for a serious illness, facing surgery, suffering from the effects of aging, or trauma from an experience earlier in life. Sick persons who have been anointed receive God’s grace through the Holy Spirit. The person must have trust in God’s plan for their salvation in order to have the strength and bravery to embrace the disease.
A simple reception will follow Mass. Our facility is handicapped-accessible with ample parking.
Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand, touched the leper, and said to him, “Be made clean.” Immediately he was made clean.
