Another large turnout is expected for the third annual archdiocesan World Day of the Sick Mass, hosted by the Order of Malta Feb. 8, 12:30 p.m., at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels
Bishop Edward Clark will preside at the concelebrated Mass, which will include an anointing for the sick. Held on the closest Saturday to the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes (Feb. 11), the World Day of the Sick is celebrated worldwide.
The Rite of Anointing, which will be administered following Bishop Clark’s homily, is available to those suffering a serious (chronic or terminal) physical or mental illness, those anticipating serious surgery, and the elderly, as well as those who are dying or who are in danger of death.
There will be ample accommodations at the Cathedral for those in wheelchairs. For information, contact Tim Garrity: [email protected].
