Bishop to Celebrate Healing and Anointing Mass

WESTON—”Christ alone is the Divine Physician who can truly heal us with His love. It is Christ who is the face of Mercy Himself,” said Bishop Frank J. Caggiano at October’s Synod on young people, the faith and vocational discernment in Rome.

On Saturday, April 6 all who are looking for healing are welcome to a special Healing and Anointing Mass at St. Francis of Assisi in Weston at 11 am. Bishop Caggiano will be the main celebrant.

All readings for the Mass will be centered on the topic of healing. After the homily, those wishing to receive the Sacrament of Anointing will be asked to come forward for Bishop Caggiano to anoint their forehead and hands and the Mass will continue.

“This Mass is especially for anyone who is looking to receive the Sacrament of Anointing and we welcome anyone who might be in need of healing,” said Rose Talbot-Babey, coordinator of religious education.

This event is being run by the Office of Faith Formation. The goal of the Office of Faith Formation is to foster, guide and support the endeavor of life-long formation in the teachings of Christ and all aspects of the Catholic Faith on both the parish and diocesan levels.

Under the direction of the bishop, chief catechist of the diocese, the Office of Faith Formation strives to accomplish this goal of catechesis and evangelization for all ages.
