Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of Anointing is meant for those Christians whose health is seriously impaired by sickness and old age. Through the anointing the Church supports the sick in their struggle against illness, continuing Christ’s work of healing.

If possible, the sacrament should be requested at the beginning of a serious illness so the person can participate actively and fully. The presence of family members and others from the community highlight this prayer of the Church as a healing encounter with the Lord. Anointing may be repeated as dictated by the condition of the person, whether during the same or a different illness.

If you would like to celebrate the Sacrament of Anointing, or know of someone who would benefit from it, just call the parish office at 513-721-4045 and ask to speak to the priest. If this is an emergency, please make sure you let us know at the time of your call.
