Anointing of the Sick is intended for those who are seriously ill in spirit, mind and/or body or when facing major surgery. This Sacrament of Healing should be celebrated as early as possible after a diagnosis of serious illness.
St. Mary’s celebrates the Sacrament in a liturgical and communal way on the first Thursday of each month immediately following 8 am Mass. (This is currently suspended.)
Anointing is also available on an on-call basis by calling the main parish number 651-429-7771. An answering service will answer during non-business hours.
