Anointing & Pastoral Care of the Sick
The Church teaches that Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, through the ministry of the priest is at the onset of serious illness. This sacrament is offered for those preparing for major surgery or seriously ill by contacting the St Mary Parish Office at 386-437-5098 during hours of operation. For Last Rite imminent death after office hours please call Fr. Slawek at 904-570-7492.
If you are checking into a hospital, you must specifically let the hospital staff know at registration that, "I am a Catholic AND I am requesting a visit from a chaplin." If possible, please contact the Parish Center at 386-437-5098 so a visit from the Priest can be arranged.
Prayer For Renewed Strength
O Lord, my God,
Please give me the grace to maintain my hope in you
through all of life’s changes
and to taste and see your goodness.
I praise you for the gifts you have showered
on me for so many years.
Help me find joy in a renewed
strength of spirit. Please bless me with good
health, and inspire me to be a good example to others.
For you are Lord, forever and ever.
