Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is to offer prayers for possible recovery, with the more important intention to give strength to the soul of the sick person. Often, when people are sick, they get discouraged, depressed, angry, annoyed, and afraid. The Church believes that the sacrament offers a special grace to calm the spirit. If physical recovery is God’s will, so be it. If not, then the person needs the grace, strength, and encouragement to bear the illness with dignity.

Please contact our Parish Rectory, (650) 755-9786, if you or a family member require the sacrament of anointing of the sick and reside within our church boundaries.
