Our Lady of Lourdes Church – Patronal Feast – 11th of February

Monday is the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, celebrated as a Solemnity in the Church of Our Lady of
Lourdes in our parish. On Monday, the parish Mass for the solemnity will be celebrated at Our Lady of
Lourdes Church at 10am.

The celebration of Our Lady of Lourdes, February 11th, is the World Day of the Sick, an observation
started by Pope St John Paul II as a way for believers to offer prayers for those suffering from illnesses.
People around the world take the time to pray for the sick and for those who work very hard to alleviate
the sufferings of the sick on this day. The first healings in Lourdes occurred during the Apparitions of
1858. They have not ceased since that time. The healing of bodies, however, cannot overshadow the
healing of hearts. Both the sick and the healthy find themselves in front of the Grotto of the Apparitions:
they are united through the exchange of smiles, through the sharing of gestures and prayers.

To mark the World Day of the Sick, the Sacrament of the Sick will be offered during Mass on Monday – why not come along to pray for all the Sick.
