The Sacrament of Holy Unction (Healing Service), the mystery of the anointing with holy oil blessed by the Holy Spirit, is most commonly celebrated on Holy Wednesday of Holy Week. Orthodox Christians may be anointed with the holy oil for the healing of spiritual and bodily ills. Holy Unction is served on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 6:00pm and can also be provided in private services as well.
As a directive from the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta, you will no longer be permitted to take Holy Unction home. However, the priest may anoint those unable to attend the service of Holy Unction on another day. For those who are sick, homebound, shut-in or infirm, please contact the Church office to make arrangements for a visit from one of the priests for an offering of healing prayers and the Holy Sacraments.
