LOURDES SICK AND HELPERS PILGRIMAGE FUND SECOND COLLECTION THIS WEEKEND. February 11 is World Day of the Sick, an observation introduced by Pope John Paul II as a way for believers to offer prayers for those suffering from illnesses. The day coincides with the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes and is an important opportunity for those who serve in Catholic health ministry to reflect on caring for those who are sick and for those who work very hard to alleviate the sufferings of the sick on this day.

Please be aware that baptism will now be on First Saturday of every month at 11:30am.
