In celebration of Our Lady of Lourdes Feast Day on Tuesday, February 11th, a special Mass of Healing and Anointing of the Sick was held in St. Mary’s Chapel on the Hill. Over one hundred people attended the Mass and many more braved the frigid temperatures to visit the Grotto throughout the day to honor our Lady on this special feast.
Father Tom Smith, Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, was the celebrant for the Mass. He gave a moving Homily about how God heals us in many ways beyond just our physical nature and reminded us that we need to trust in God’s providence. The Anointing service was very moving and left attendees spiritually renewed with a sense of peace and tranquility.
We look forward to having another Mass of Healing and Anointing of the Sick this summer. Stay connected with us online, in the mail, and in person to keep up to date on the latest happenings at the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes.
