SACRAMENTS

Anointing of the Sick 

The Gospels relate many stories of the sick coming to Jesus for healing. Besides laying His hands on them in prayer, our Lord also made use of clay, spittle and water to impart healing power. On other occasions, the simple act of touching His garments brought health and wholeness. In the Sacrament of the anointing of the Sick, Christ continues His ministry of spiritual and physical healing.

When is it available?
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is available at anytime for the dying. Rev. Micale can be contacted at the rectory at 802 644-5073.

Parishioners scheduled for serious surgery or with serious illness are asked to call the rectory during regular office hours to schedule a time for a visit.
