Beginning October 6th St. Kilian Church will celebrate an Anointing Mass on the first Saturday of every other month at 8:00 am.
During Mass, Father will anoint each person who is in need of the Sacrament – those who need the strength to endure his or her serious illness, to undergo surgery or treatment, or to manage the frailty of old age.
If possible, please sit toward the front of the Church, in every other pew (so that Father will have easier access).
2018 Schedule of Anointing Masses: October 6 and December 1 at 8:00 am.
Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that is received by those who are ill or suffering. By the sacred anointing and the prayer of the priest, the whole Church commends those who are sick to Christ. The sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength, faith, peace, and courage, and his or her suffering is united with the suffering of Christ.
