“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.”

The Anointing of the Sick offers people strength, peace, and courage to overcome the hardships of serious illness or the increasing frailty of old age. Its grace is meant to lead primarily to healing of their spirit, and if God wills, to healing of their body. Please contact the Parish Office at 518-668-2046 to celebrate the Anointing of the Sick for the homebound.
