Reconciliation & Anointing of the Sick

RECONCILIATION

Confessions are heard on Saturday afternoons from 2:30-3:30 pm in the Church and other times by appointment (614.882.2109).  During Advent and Lent, the parish celebrates a communal Rite of Reconciliation.  See the bulletin for date and time.

First Penance

Youth are prepared for First Penance in the Catholic School and in the Parish School of Religion (PSR) following the Diocesan Graded Course of Study and Diocesan Guidelines for celebrating the sacrament with children.

Adults are prepared for First Penance during the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process and celebrate the sacrament prior to becoming Catholic.

 

ANOINTING OF THE SICK

By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them.  And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.
Vatican Council II, Lumen Gentium, 11

Please contact the parish office to arrange for the anointing of the sick prior to surgery,during hospital stays, for the homebound or for those in extended care facilities.  Since this sacrament is intended to help those who are sick during their illness and not just in the last moments of life, it is best not to delay in arranging for the celebration of this sacrament.  In case of emergency, a priest can be reached by calling the parish office(614.882.2109).
