Sacraments - Ministry to the Sick
Sick or infirm, homebound or hospitalized, each baptized person is, nonetheless, part of our parish, a member of the Body of Christ. So don’t be afraid that you’re being a burden, and don’t think we’re so busy that we wouldn't have time for you. We are here for you.
Prayers for the Sick at Mass
At each Mass on Sunday, we pray for the sick of the parish. If you would us to remember you in prayer, please call, fax or e-mail us.
When illness or infirmity keeps you from Sunday Mass, our Eucharistic Ministers will bring a word of scripture and the Body of Christ to us at home or in Aventura Hospital.
Sacrament of the Sick
Each time a Catholic falls seriously ill, it is possible to receive the Sacrament of the Sick. If you are going to the hospital for an operation, you should consider receiving the Sacrament of the Sick. It is better to receive the Sacrament of the Sick before you enter the hospital. If you are able to come to Church, the priest will anoint you through the Sacrament of the Sick after Mass or by appointment. If you are homebound or at Aventura Hospital, please contact us and the priest will come to you.
