Anointing of the Sick


WHAT the Catechism Teaches: “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.” CCC #1499Find more here…

CHURCH Policy: This sacrament is not only for those who are at the point of death.  As soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in danger of death from sickness or old age, a family member should call for the priest. EVERY Hospital and Nursing Facility has a priest “on-call” list, so just let the Hospital nursing station or Nursing Facility know that you want your loved one anointed and they will get the priest “on-call”.

If that doesn’t work, then email Fr. Kawalec or call the parish office (330-699-5086 choose option for emergency).

Communal Anointing Service every October after the 4:30pm Mass
