The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is given to all those who are seriously ill by anointing them with oil blessed by the Bishop, and it is not reserved only for those who are at the point of death. This sacred anointing can be repeated for each serious illness or for a relapse of the same illness.
If you need a priest to administer the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, please call the priests’ phone: 240-400-0339
“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the presbyters (priests) of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”James 5:14-15
