Anointing of the Sick

If you or someone you care for is sick and would like to be anointed or have Communion, call the Rectory at 773.764.3621.


The weekend of the Feast of St. Gertrude, Saturday, November 16 at the 5:00 pm Mass, and Sunday, November 17 at all the Masses, we will offer the Sacrament of Anointing the Sick. This sacrament is for anyone suffering from any illness or condition, temporary or chronic, and even for those who simply are feeling the effects of aging. The Anointing has always been understood to be about comfort and healing of both body and spirit, and every kind of distress—physical, mental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual.
