Anointing of the Sick & Emergencies

Healing in Christ

From the very beginning of the Church, Christians have striven to imitate Christ, who “went about doing good and healing all” (Acts 10:38). 

This is done through the visiting and consolation of the sick and suffering, and the sponsoring of hospitals and care facilities, but is concretized in a special way in the Sacrament of Anointing. The Apostle James prescribes that the sick be prayed over, and anointed with oil, noting that the “prayer of faith will save the sick” (James 5:15).

For an anointing please do not hestitate to contact Fr. Glen at gbutterworth@ or by calling his office at (206) 965-1643. You may also schedule with Fr. Matthew by emailing him at mpyrc@.

In the event of an afterhours emergency, please call (206) 327-7472. in the event of an emergency.

For a hospital visit or to receive communion, please contact Deacon Steve at stevew@ or call him at (206) 965-1646

You can also join us at our monthly Anointing Mass on the first Friday of each month at 11:30 am. (temporarily canceled by COVID)
