Last February 11, we had a Special Mass for the Sick and Medical and Dental Clinic in celebration to the 25th World Day of the Sick held on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.

In Pope Francis’ message for the 25th World Day of the Sick, he stated: “On this Twenty-fifth World Day of the Sick, I once more offer my prayerful support and encouragement to physicians, nurses, volunteers and all those consecrated men and women committed to serving the sick and those in need. I also embrace the ecclesial and civil institutions working to this end, and the families who take loving care of their sick. I pray that all may be ever joyous signs of the presence of God’s love and imitate the luminous testimony of so many friends of God, including Saint John of God and Saint Camillus de’ Lellis, the patrons of hospitals and healthcare workers, and Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta, missionary of God’s love.” In response to this call, we had our Special Mass for the Sick that was celebrated at 8:00am where our sick brothers and sisters were granted the Sacrament of Healing: Anointing of the Sick during the mass. Then followed by the Medical and Dental Clinic which our parish usually do every month at 9:00am.
