Feast of St. Blaise – Blessing of Throats

Suffering and illness have always been among the greatest problems that trouble the human spirit. As Catholics, we feel and experience pain as do people of every faith; yet our faith helps us to grasp more deeply the mystery of suffering and to bear their pain with greater courage. The annual blessing of throats is a transitional sign of the struggle against illness in the life of a Catholic.

On Thursday, February 3, there will be a Blessing of Throats at our regular 12:10 pm Mass. Please come!
