Programs for the next 2 months

   Feb 2020

     Blessing of the Throats
February 3rd is the Feast of St. Blaise, an Armenian physician,
bishop, and martyr from the 4th Century. Many miracles were
attributed to St. Blaise, including the healing of a young girl who
was choking, and this is why St. Blaise is the patron saint of those
suffering from ailments of the throat. We ask for his intercession
for the healing of any kind in a special way on his feast with the traditional
blessing of the throats. The blessing of the throats will take place at
the end of the 8:00 am Mass on Monday, February 3rd
