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!
