Anointing

Anointing is an integral part of the church’s pastoral and sacramental ministry. At Healing Services, after receiving prayer with the laying on of hands, it is possible to be anointed with Holy Oil as prayer for healing (in body, mind and spirit) continues to be offered.

Sometimes people are anointed as they are being prayed for near the close of their earthly lives (sometimes referred to as “the last rites”). If you, or someone you know, requires the ministry of anointing when they are ill or close to death, please contact Fr. Neil at any times – day or night – on 01257 266037.

We anoint you in the name of God who gives you life.

Receive Christ’s forgiveness, his healing and his love. May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ grant you the riches of his grace, his wholeness and his peace. Amen.
