Mass of the Anointing of the Sick
Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 11:00 AM
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick brings the presence and healing power of Christ to those who are ill. We invite all who are sick and those who would like to pray for them to come to this celebration of the sacrament.
Is anyone among you sick? They should summon the elders of the church, and they should pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up. If they have committed any sins, they will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.

WE HAVE REACHED OUR CAPACITY AND SPOTS ARE SOLD OUT
Let’s Pray Our Hope on the Brooklyn Bridge!
In his 2015 encyclical Laudato Si, Pope Francis calls on all people to “care for our common home,” reminding us that “the poor and the earth are crying out.”
There is an urgent need to promote a clean energy economy that would benefit all of us and protect the environment of our shared planet. People from diverse faith groups will come together with a common concern for the impact of climate change on us, on certain sectors of the economy, and on the poor and future generations
Sunday, January 22, from 5:00 to 5:20 PM
at the center section of the Brooklyn Bridge
for a short, peaceful candlelight vigil to express our intention to work for a clean energy economy that benefits all and addresses inequality and injustice and in recognition that the protection of the earth is our sacred responsibility.
We invite you to join us in collective strength and prayer as we prepare to face the challenges ahead.
If you can, bring a battery-operated candle or tealight. .
We will pray with our lights of hope.
Sponsored by GreenFaith and endorsed by the Franciscan Action Network and the Metro NY Global Catholic Climate Movement.
