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.

Praise be to God for providing a warm day yesterday and a West wind to accompany it!The Chapel ramp is now de-iced and ready for use - the stairs leading to the chapel entrance on Page St. are not open.The church is at about 50 degrees, which is better than it was, but still encourages warm clothing.Blessings,Richard+ ...

Dearest Saints of St. John's,The good news is that our plumbers worked this week on the replacement of the 70-year-old gas line that runs beside Gregory Hall and into the Stringer Garden - they dug the trench for the new pipe.We all know what happened on Tuesday-Thursday. Today they came out and did some more work, but they are by no means complete.Maybe next week. Pray that the weather is good and that we can get the installation done and inspection scheduled quickly.So, this Sunday, we will definitely not have heat again - dress warmly.Also, because of the sleet, the Chapel Entrance and the Gregory Hall Entrance are not usable. They are on the North side of the building and are in the shade all day long. And, the plumbers have blocked off the Gregory Hall Entrance because of their work.Fr. Foster's Church History Class will begin this Sunday in the Guild Parlor during the Sunday School Hour.The kids may have their Sunday School in The Children's Chapel as it is the only classroom in the building that is not heated by a gas furnace.I look forward to seeing you as I have recovered from my illness.God bless you for your faithfulness,Richard+ ...
