SACRAMENT OF THE SICK

SACRAMENT OF THE SICK


Many like to receive the Sacrament of the Sick and are strengthened and affirmed. If you would like to receive the Sacrament of the Sick or know someone who would, please contact the parish office on 020 8969 2660.

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is exactly what it says. It is a prayerful celebration for any person in ‘serious illness,’ those who are infirm, in advanced years, or anyone prior to surgery can be anointed. God’s healing and loving presence are called upon that the sick person might be raised up and restored to health. A person is anointed on the forehead and the palms of the hands while the priest says: “Through this holy anointing may the Lord in his love and mercy help you by the grace of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord who heals you, save you and raise you up.”
