The focus here is on the possibility of a spiritual or physical healing but other aspects of the person’s health also are considered. Many times, the spiritual healing is far more dramatic than the physical healing, and sometimes there is an increased ability to accept the physical illness and its suffering.
The Parish provides two opportunities during the year to receive the healing strength of the Sacrament of the Sick as a community for those who are seriously ill, elderly, disabled, facing surgery, or who are afflicted with any other condition of physical, mental, or spiritual suffering. These liturgies are designed so that the community can support those members who are suffering. Please call the Parish House for an individual Anointing of the Sick: (212) 288-3588.
