Healing

Anointing-for-HealingAnointing for Healing

Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. (James 5:14-15)

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing.  At one time the Church reserved this sacrament for individuals who were near death and preparing for passing over to eternal life.  It was commonly known as Extreme Unction or Last Rites.  Today, the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is administered to those who fall seriously ill and also for those who are seeking healing of their mind, body and soul through the special grace of this sacrament.

We administer the sacrament in the context of Mass, or on its own, depending on the needs of the individual who is sick. If the individual is not able to come to the church, the sacrament may be celebrated in their home.

Anointing of the Sick is celebrated on Sunday morning at the 9:00 am and 11:15 am services.  We also celebrate it on Wednesday evening at the 6:00 pm Mass.

Please contact the Rector if you or someone you know needs to receive the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.

Today marks the twenty year anniversary of the passing of Kenneth Stringer, a loving husband to Sarah Golding Stringer, father to Matt Stringer, and faithful and beloved parishioner of St. John’s. We thought it meet and right to share pictures of the beautifully restored Stringer Memorial Garden today. There will be more photos to come and details of all those involved in the restoration process, but for now we want to share this verse today as we remember dear Kenneth. Please join us in praying for the Stringer family.“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.”1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 ESV ... See MoreSee Less
