Anointing is a sacrament of healing for people in times of serious physical, mental or emotional illness.
The sacrament of the anointing of the sick is for people who are facing major surgery, serious illness, chronic illness and aging. The church recognizes that people need the healing and strengthening power of Christ in these difficult times. Saint Clement offers the sacrament of the anointing of the sick at weekend liturgies in spring and fall each year. Any parishioner may also receive this sacrament by simply making an appointment with one of the priests.
