Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick

Is anyone among you suffering?  He should pray.  Is anyone in good Spirits?  He should sing praise.  Is anyone among you sick?  He should summon the presbyters[priests] of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and this prayer of faith will same same the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up.  If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. (James 5: 1315)

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is for the healing and spiritual strengthening of those who are impaired by sickness or old age. A person who is to undergo surgery may also be anointed. This sacrament is for the sick, and not only the dying, so please request the sacrament when illness is discovered. The presence of loved ones and friends who pray along with the priest is important at the anointing.

 If you are ill or planning to enter the hospital and wish to be anointed, please call the parish office at 409-883-9153 and make an appointment for anointing before you enter the hospital.

Parishioners with chronic illness or in advanced age are urged to attend the communal anointing services when announced in the bulletin.

Remember:  Once you have been anointed, you do not need to be anointed again during the same illness unless several months have passed.

Hospitalization.  If you wish to receive the Sacraments of Anointing of the Sick, Reconciliation (Confession) and Holy Communion:

  2. At Commercial Hospitals, please register as a Catholic (so the Catholic chaplain will know you are there);

 The disciples were filled with joy when they saw the Lord, and he said to him again, 'Peace be with you.  As the Father sent me, so I am sending you.'
