World Day of the Sick  February 11, 2020

The ministry of Jesus to the sick is central to the life of the Church. February 11th (Memorial of Our Lady of Lourdes) highlights the healing ministry of the Church. It reminds us that service to the sick and suffering cannot be neglected. It recognizes the great efforts of doctors, nurses, health care institutions and pastoral care givers to restore health to those afflicted with illness and disease.

In celebration of this year’s World Day of the Sick, Archbishop Hundt invites you to join him at a special Mass on Tuesday February 11th 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Basilica of St. John the Baptist (200 Military Road, St. John’s, NL). All those who are involved in caring for the sick are especially invited to this celebration. Following the Mass there will be light refreshments available and an opportunity for socializing.
