Anointing of the Sick Mass – October 13 – 8 a.m.

There will be an Anointing Mass held next Saturday, October 13, at 8:00 a.m. at St. Francis Solanus Church.  The anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death.  A sacrament is an outward sign established by Jesus Christ to confer inward grace.  In more basic terms, it is a rite that is performed to convey God’s grace to the recipient, through the power of the Holy Spirit.  A light reception of coffee and doughnuts in Solanus Hall will follow.
