Our OLR Church

We're proud to highlight several happenings at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish.

Anointing of the sick

Christ's Healing Touch

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick offers prayer for healing, hope, and strength and is intended for a Catholic at the beginning of a serious illness, before surgery or weakened due to age or chronic infirmity.  Viaticum, “Food for the Journey”, is Holy Communion with special prayers for the dying and serves as the “last rites” for Catholics who are terminally ill and in the last stages of life.

  • 1. Basic Information

    “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.”

     (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1499)

    The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is for persons whose health is seriously imperilled by illness or old age.
