The Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing appropriate not only for those in immediate danger of death but also for those suffering from chronic illness or preparing for surgery. The individual receives from the Holy Spirit the graces of “strengthening, peace, and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with the condition of serious illness or frailty of old age.” CCC 1520
Anointing of the Sick will take place at St. James immediately following all Masses during the weekend of October 8th and 9th. Parishioners will be invited to remain in their seats following Mass if they wish to be anointed. If you are unable to attend on October 8th or 9th and wish to receive the sacrament, please contact the parish office at 262-251-3944.
