Holy Unction

May 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This sacrament, instituted in the Epistle of St. James, is celebrated  during Holy Week in some Orthodox traditions to strengthen the faithful as we enter into the day of Christ’s death. The oil of mercy, which is traditionally blessed by seven priests, is given to effect healing and forgiveness of sins.

Holy Unction is a sacrament of the Orthodox Church, and the same rules apply as with the Eucharist. Only members of the Orthodox Church may receive the anointing.
