The parishes of Adamstown, Hamilton and Kotara continue to meet together on the first Thursday of each month to celebrate a Healing Mass. Oils of healing, anointing and the Laying On of Hands are also available for those who seek this sacrament. Additionally, there is a prayer roster where the names of the sick can be added, and cards to take to those for whom prayers have been offered. A warm welcome is extended to any who wish to receive these ministries as we live out together the teaching of James 5:13-16.
“Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.”
