Miguel Mariano (Chaplain of the Order of Malta) and Fr. Liam Leahy. Knights and Dames and Auxiliary members assisted the sick throughout the Mass. The introduction, readings, prayers of the faithful, and offertory gifts were delivered by members of the Order.
Tucson members provided an opportunity for the people of the Diocese to receive an anointing of the sick by the Bishop and blessings of the caregivers. Order of Malta Malta labeled Lourdes water was passed out to the attendees and several petitions were collected to take with us to place on the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes in May.
