Due to some delays to improvements of the Mission Church, daily Mass will take place in the new church through October 15th.
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
“Is anyone sick among you? Let them call for the elders of the church, and they should pray over the sick and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. This prayer made in faith will save the sick, and if they have committed any sins, they will be forgiven.” Letter of James 5:14-15. This New Testament passage is the basis for our Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. It is clearly intended to be a prayer of the community for healing and forgiveness. For some centuries, it came to be seen as “last rites” only for those near death. However, in recent years, its original meaning has been appreciated once again. Anyone who is seriously ill, made infirm by age or is about to undergo surgery may request this sacrament. For those near death, the true “last rites” is the Viaticum, literally “food for the journey”: the Holy Eucharist given to those near death to nourish them for eternal life. Please remember to advise the Parish office whenever the sacrament is needed for a loved one or friend.

Purchasing an Annual Memorial Candle in honor of a loved one or for a special intention is a wonderful way to remember your loved one while supporting the parish and beautifying the sacred space of our church. Your memorial candle by our Lady of the Rosary or St. Joseph’s statue will “burn” for one full year in honor of your loved one or your special intention.
A plaque displaying the name of your intention will be mounted in front of each candle. And will remain for one year.
