Anointing of the Sick


"Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven" - James 5:14-15

The Anointing of the Sick is especially intended to strengthen those who are being tried by illness. The grace poured out by the Holy Spirit renews trust and faith in God. It strengthens against temptation and helps to preserve us from discouragement and anguish in the face of illness and death. This assistance is meant to lead the sick person to healing of the soul, but also of the body, if such is God's will.

Please contact the office at 519-685-2795 for a pastoral visit or for the Holy Anointing of the Sick. We request that you do not wait until the last moment to notify us, but know that we are available at any time in any case of emergency.
