Anointing of the Sick
Father Bill routinely offers this Sacrament the first weekend of each month after the Masses. This is a sacrament of healing. Before surgery, during an extended illness or in extreme cases, do not hesitate to call on the priest to offer the prayers of the Church.
If you are exploring a vocation to the priesthood, please don’t hesitate to contact the diocesan Vocations Directors,
Fr. David Darcy at 413.896.6397
or Fr. Michael Wood
at 413.739.0456 Ext 4,
or by emailing
or visiting them on the web at www.myvocation.com.
Heard each Saturday after the 9AM Mass, before the Masses (and after the Sunday Masses), and twice a year at St. Joseph Church during our Advent and Lenten Communal Reconciliation Services. Also any time by appointment.
