The Sacrament of Healing and Hope

Welcome to the River Oaks Church, where we offer the sacrament of the anointing of the sick with utmost care and compassion. As a community dedicated to faith and beliefs, we understand the importance of supporting individuals and their families during challenging times.

Understanding the Anointing of the Sick

The anointing of the sick, also known as the sacrament of the sick or last rites, holds significant spiritual value in the Catholic faith. It is one of the seven sacraments that provides healing and comfort to those who are experiencing physical, emotional, or spiritual distress.

This sacrament brings hope and strength to individuals facing serious illnesses, preparing them both spiritually and emotionally for the journey ahead. It is a powerful encounter with God's grace that offers forgiveness, peace, and unity with the Church community.

Who Can Receive the Sacrament?

The anointing of the sick is not solely reserved for individuals on the brink of death. While it is commonly administered to those facing life-threatening situations, it is also available to anyone who is seriously ill, undergoing surgery, or experiencing the burden of chronic illness.

At River Oaks Church, we perform the sacrament upon request, ensuring that our community members have access to this divine intervention whenever needed. Our dedicated team of priests and pastoral staff are ready to provide spiritual guidance and support during these challenging times.

The Process of Receiving the Sacrament

If you or your loved one seek the anointing of the sick at River Oaks Church, we offer a structured and compassionate process to guide you through this sacrament:

  1. Contact our church office or speak with one of our pastoral staff members to express your interest in receiving the anointing of the sick.
  2. Schedule a convenient time for the sacrament, either at our church or at a location that ensures the well-being of the individual requesting it.
  3. Prepare spiritually by seeking reconciliation through the sacrament of confession, allowing for a deeper connection with God's mercy and grace.
  4. During the anointing, one or more of our priests will administer the sacrament by anointing the individual's forehead and hands with holy oil, offering prayers of healing, strength, and renewed faith.
  5. Following the anointing, our community comes together to pray for the well-being and recovery of the recipient, fostering a sense of unity and support during their journey of healing.
