Anointing of the Sick

This sacrament gives the grace of the Holy Spirit to those who are sick: by this grace the whole person is helped and saved, sustained by trust in God, and strengthened against temptations of the Evil One and against anxiety over death. Thus the sick person is able not only to bear suffering bravely, but also to fight against it.(Pastoral Care of the Sick, 6)

Anointing of the Sick will be celebrated on the First Wednesday of every month at 7:00pm in the St. Ignatius Chapel. All are welcome for prayer, music, and the celebration of this healing sacrament.

If you are unable to celebrate the Sacrament of the Sick here at Holy Trinity, please call the Parish Center at 202-337-2840 to celebrate it at home or in the hospital.
