Anointing of the Sick

“Are any among you sick? They should call for the presbyters of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven.” -James 5:14-15

All parishioners who find themselves facing illness, surgery or other serious ailments are encouraged to celebrate the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. It can be celebrated more than one time. It can be celebrated in the hospital, a nursing home or in the individual’s home. It is only celebrated by a priest or bishop. Please contact the rectory office to schedule an appointment with Fr. Shafique at 313-527-0380.

Extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist(lay ministers) can also visit parishioners in hospitals, nursing homes or at home to pray and distribute communion for those parishioners who cannot attend Mass regularly due to physical limitations or infirmity. Please contact the rectory office for more information at 313-527-0380.
