Our Parish Community Celebrates Mass for the Homebound

On Saturday, September 29th, our Parish celebrated a Mass during which the Sacrament of the Sick was administered to our homebound parishioners and other parishioners who requested the Sacrament of the Sick.  Many Homebound parishioners who were personally  invited, were able   to attend with the help of their family or other parishioners.   Over 40 parishioners were anointed with the blessed oil, and many others came to pray with them.   It was a beautiful gathering of the community, and all who attended were spiritually uplifted.  Following the Mass, there was a reception in the Monsignor Woods Hall which was provided by our Respect Life Committee and served by our children from our Parish Youth Group. Additional photos are available in the Photo Gallery on the Parish website.

The Sacrament of the Sick, being one of the seven Sacraments of the Church, gives the grace of the Holy Spirit to those who are sick. By this grace, the whole person is helped and saved, sustained by trust in God and strengthened in their weakness.
