Fr. Tom’s Column
Sunday, Nov. 30
3:00 p.m.
There will be
Anointing of the Sick
and the
Laying on of Hands
The special Healing Mass will
take care of your Sunday obligation.
What is the Anointing of the Sick? It is one of
the Seven Sacraments of the Church. Through this
Sacrament, we call upon the Son of God (Jesus) to
pour forth healing and remove any afflictions in the
person’s life.
Anointing is for those who are physically,
emotionally or spiritually ill.
You are invited to come down the center aisle where
Fr. Durant will anoint you with the chrism.
Then if you wish, you may go to one of the
Deacons for the Laying on of Hands.

You are asking the Deacon to call
forth the Holy Spirit to come and

Laying on of Hands that a person
opens up his life to the gentle
guidance of the Holy Spirit, as the
Spirit pours forth God’s gifts.
