The sacrament of the Sick may be celebrated in two ways in our Parish, individually and collectively. Anointing with blessed oil and prayers by a priest can give comforting grace and bring Christ to the seriously ill or dying. The priest of the parish are happy to attend a sick person on request. This is associated with the First Friday Visits in the parish.
Communally we celebrate this sacrament with our Annual Mass for the Sick, with those who are in need are brought for Mass and healing. All are invited, either to pray with and for their sick, or to receive the healing of the sacrament.
In Corpus Christi Church, Drumcondra it is planned to host the diocesan Mass with anointing of the Sick on Sunday 10th February 2019. This is linked to 11th February, 2019. (World Day of the Sick, Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes). This is within our grouping of parishes.
