Church of the Holy Family at 11804 S Saginaw St, Grand Blanc, MI 48439 US - Anointing of the Sick
|Anointing of the Sick|
People who are going into the hospital for test or surgery have a special need for spiritual care and support. Our Lord Jesus understood the fears and the worries of those who are ill (and of their families), and so He instituted in His Church a special sacrament called the anointing of the sick. This gift of grace is for anyone who is facing surgery, experiencing a serious illness or becoming weak because of old age.
We encourage anyone who needs this spiritual consolation and divine assistance to speak to one of the priests as soon as this becomes a worry. If for surgery, do this before the day you got to the hospital so that here in our community, in the church or at your home, we can pray with you and administer this powerful sign of God's healing love."
To receive the Sacrament of the Sick when you come to Mass - mention your need to the priest before Mass - and receive the Anointing afterward.
