Every member at Holy Trinity Church may receive comfort, encouragement and support during times of joy and times of sorrow through the various ministries for care and concern available within the chaplaincy. We see visitation is a vital ministry of our church.
The clergy and designated lay pastoral ministers visit our hospitalized and shut-in members to bring them news of the chaplaincy, to pray with them, to provide sacramental care, and to be a reminder of God’s abiding and aiding presence.
When you anticipate hospitalization, or when it occurs suddenly to you or someone you love, or if you are unable to attend but would like a visit, please call our Chaplain, David Phillips, or our Parish Administrator, David Vollmer-Laarman. We will make every effort to visit you during your hospitalization or in your home and will include you in our chaplaincy prayers.
Anointing the Sick
Anointing of the Sick is an act of healing, conveyed on both the sick and the dying. The sacrament consists of laying on of hands and/or anointing with oil along with prayers.
Any parishioner may request the ministry of a priest to receive Anointing. At Holy Trinity Church, we offer healing ministry as part of the main service four times a year. Click hear for more information.
N., I anoint you in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. As with this holy oil you are outwardly anointed, so may our heavenly Father grant that you may be inwardly anointed with the Holy Spirit. May he of his great mercy, restore to you health and strength to serve him, release from pain in body and mind. May he forgive you all your sins, preserve you in all goodness, and bring you to everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Almighty Lord, who is a strong tower to all who put their trust in him, to whom all things in heaven, on earth, and under the earth bow and obey: Be now and evermore your defense, and make you know and feel that the only Name under heaven given for health and salvation is the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
