So they went out and preached repentance. They drove out many demons, and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.” Mark 6:12-13
Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing which brings Christ’s strength, comfort, and healing to those who are suffering in spirit, mind or body. It is for people who are getting ready for surgery, the very sick, those suffering infirmities of age and for anyone near death. It can be celebrated anywhere, and it can be received more than once.
For those parishioners seriously ill or preparing for an operation or hospital stay, this sacrament is celebrated each Saturday after the 4:00PM Mass in St. Julia Church or by arrangement with the pastor. Families of parishioners in danger of death are urged to contact Fr. Mark at 781-899-2611.
