Holy Week is fast approaching!
Here at St. Paul’s, our rector the Rev. Jessica Schaap has made herself available (by appointment) for each and everyone who would like to receive the Sacrament of Anointing, Sacrament of Reconciliation or simply a contemplative prayer with the rector while walking our labyrinth during the Holy Week. It is our way of helping you prepare for Lent.
1. Sacrament of Anointing – personal anointing with oil. The oil is applied in the sign of the cross to the forehead and open palms with the words,
“Through this holy anointing, may the Lord in his love and mercy strengthen and uphold you by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit.”
Every one is invited to receive God’s healing in the act of sacramental anointing and freely available to anyone who requests it.
2. Sacrament of Reconciliation – (also known as Confession). This way of personal healing through unburdening one’s conscience, receiving forgiveness, and committing to amendment of life is available by meeting with one of our priests. The Sacrament of Reconciliation may be requested anytime.
3. Accompanied Labyrinth Walk – our rector will be very happy to accompany and pray with you as you walk your labyrinth.
