Anointing of the Sick

Healing in Christ

From the very beginning of the Church, Christians have striven to imitate Christ, who “went about doing good and healing all” (Acts 10:38).

This is done through the visiting and consolation of the sick and suffering, and the sponsoring of hospitals and care facilities, but is concretized in a special way in the Sacrament of Anointing. The Apostle James prescribes that the sick be prayed over, and anointed with oil, noting that the “prayer of faith will save the sick” (James 5:15).

For an anointing please do not hesitate to contact Fr. Hightower, S.J., Fr. Victor Cancino, S.J., Fr. Tom Lankenau, S.J., or Fr. Steve Lantry S.J. at (406) 542-0321.

Following the 8:00 am Mass on the First Friday of the month anointing is available here in the church. As well as, on Fridays during Advent and Lent.
