Confirmation

Now when the Apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, who went down and prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for He had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord, Jesus. Then they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit. (Acts 8, 14-17)


Marriage

Holy Orders

“Melchizedek, king of Salem brought out bread and wine, and being a priest of God Most High, he blessed Abraham with these words...” (Gen. 14:18)  “In the same way, it was not Christ who glorified Himself in becoming high priest, but rather the one who said to Him: ‘You are My Son; this day I have begotten you’ just as He says in another place ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.’” (Heb. 5:5-10, Lk. 22:19, Acts 14:22).


Anointing of Sick

“Is any among you sick? He should summon the priests of the Church and they should pray over him and anoint with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins they will be forgiven.” (Jam. 5:14-­15).

If someone is sick or injured, please call the parish office to receive the Anointing of the Sick. (703) 753-6700
