Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick offered at Saint Ann Church

Saint Ann Church will offer the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick during the liturgy on Saturday, Oct. 17 at the 4:00 p.m. Vigil Mass.

The Anointing of the Sick is a liturgical and communal celebration that provides strengthening, peace, and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with the conditions of illness. The sacrament can be received by all baptized Catholics who have received the sacrament of the Eucharist and who are suffering from serious or chronic illness, preparing for surgery, or suffering with emotional and physical addictions.

The sacrament is celebrated once a year. This year it will be celebrated at the Mass so that all who attend can offer their support for those who are seeking comfort and prayers.

Saint Ann Church is located at 2175 Coventry Road at the corner of Coventry and Cedar roads in Cleveland Heights. For more information contact Nancy Zoller at 216-701-7824.

Carol Iott is a member of the Saint Ann Church Liturgy and Worship Commission.
