Through the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, the entire Church asks God to lighten your sufferings, forgive your sins and bring you to eternal salvation. It is available for those who are seriously ill, aged, infirmed, or facing an operation.
Contact the Parish Office at 607 547-2213 regarding any member of your household who is ill, confined at home or in the hospital and who would like to be visited and anointed by a priest or placed on our parish prayer list.
St. Mary Our Lady of the Lake provides Pastoral Service to the Catholic patients of Bassett Hospital.
Communal Anointing of the Sick is normally done twice a year at weekend masses.
