Anointing of the Sick

Lord God, you have said to us through your Apostle James: “Are there people sick among you? Let them send for the priests of the Church, and let the priests pray over them anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick persons, and the Lord will raise them up. If they have committed any sins, their sins will be forgiven them.” (excerpt from Pastoral Care of the Sick; James 5: 14) 

At St. Martin de Porres Parish

Once a year at the 5 PM Vigil Mass of Pentecost, at St. Peter Claver Church, the Anointing of the Sick is offered publicly. 

If you or your loved one is about to undergo surgery, or is dying, please contact one of our parish priests:
