Anointing of the Sick

  • The purpose of the Anointing of the Sick is to pray for healing.  Since the time of the apostles, we have turned to God asking for healing of mind, body and soul through a personal anointing with oil.  We remember the healing the Jesus Christ offered on earth, and we pray for strength and the grace of perseverance.  This sacrament is meant to provide those with serious illness the comforting reassurance of God’s healing grace---please discern your participation in this sacrament based on the severity of your illness. 

    During the course of the year, there are communal celebrations of Anointing of the Sick during Mass, so the entire parish community can offer its prayers for the sick.  Otherwise, please contact Father William Heric to receive this sacrament in private, at your home, in a hospital, etc.  The homebound may also want to request the Eucharist and the sacrament of reconciliation. 

  • Funerals at Christ Our Hope

    For those who have died, Christians believe that life has changed, not ended.   At Christ Our Hope, we want to be there to support you in your time of loss, to celebrate the life of a loved one, to commend a loved one to God’s mercy, celebrating their participation in the death and resurrection of Jesus.

    Funeral rites may include a vigil service, a funeral Mass, and a burial service, depending on the wishes of the family.  The various rites allow for ways to remember your loved ones.

    Please contact the parish office.
