The World Day of the Sick is a feast day of the Roman Catholic Church that was instituted on May 13, 1992, by Pope John Paul II. It is celebrated every year on the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes for all believers as a special time of prayer and sharing, of offering one’s suffering. The feast of Lourdes was chosen because many pilgrims and visitors to Lourdes have reportedly been healed by intercerssions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
During the Anointing of the Sick, Archbishop Sartain and several other priests will individually bless anyone who attends, bringing the hope and the healing of Lourdes to them.
The Seattle University Chapel Choir will perform at the Mass.
No reservations are required and the public is invited to attend.
