The use of oil in healing is an ancient tradition. The Bishop of the Diocese, in our case the Archbishop, usually on Holy Thursday morning, gathers his priests and deacons to bless and concentrate the oils used in the celebration of sacraments. One of these oils is the Oil of the Sick which a priest uses in asking the Father for healing and strength for the sick person.
Here, we celebrate Mass with this anointing every month. If you or someone you know wishes to receive this sacrament or further details about this Mass, please ring the parish office on 9642 1523.
