St. Thomas the Apostle, Naperville, to offer anointing of the sick at Mass honoring St. Dymphna on May 21

St. Thomas the Apostle, 1500 Brookdale Road, Naperville, invites you to celebrate the sacrament of the anointing of the sick in the celebration of the Mass in honor of St. Dymphna at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 21.

As a Catholic community of faith, we have the holy sacraments to give us strength, nourishment and healing. Anyone, of all ages, can benefit from the sacrament of anointing — as many times as needed! There are no limits to anointing, as we are all in need of healing of various troubling conditions — physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.

St. Dymphna is the patron saint of people living with illnesses in body, mind or spirit. Her mother died when Dymphna was 17. Her father struggled with emotional issues following his wife’s death. These difficulties led to St. Dymphna’s martyrdom. Cures and miracles were attributed to her and as a result highly successful treatment centers are named for her.

Please come to celebrate her life and to receive the sacrament of the anointing of the sick.
