Anointing Of The Sick

Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick is one of the seven sacraments of the Church.  Its roots go back to the ministry of Jesus. This sacrament is not new; rather, it is a ritual that has been restored by Vatican II. Through the Anointing of the Sick, the Church offers God’s special care; it always gives us emotional and spiritual healing.

Twice a year, St. Zachary has Anointing of the Sick during the 5:00 Mass on Saturday. 

If you want a family member anointed in the hospital or at home, contact the Parish Office at 847-956-7020.  It is best to have your loved one anointed while he or she can still receive Communion and participate in the sacrament.
