The apostolic Church has its own rite for the sick, attested to by St. James: “Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders [presbyters] of the Church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” Tradition has recognized in this rite one of the seven sacraments. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1510)

This sacred anointing of the sick was instituted by Christ our Lord as a true and proper sacrament of the New Testament. It is alluded to indeed by Mark but is recommended to the faithful and promulgated by James the apostle and brother of the Lord. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1511)


Caring for those Suffering Illness

The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last sacraments one will receive.

The Parish holds a monthly mass of Healing.  Please check the bulletin or contact the Parish Office for more information.

Please call or email the Parish Office, to arrange for Father Tadeusz to visit and administer the Sacrament.  In case of emergency, phone Father directly on the mobile number which is on the Parish answering machine message.
