The Western Association has been invited to “come” to the Grotto to celebrate World Day of the Sick 2021 on Saturday, February 6.  We are extending the invitation to all of our members and ask you to share this invitation with our beloved malades.  We encourage everyone to come.

Mass will begin at 8:15 AM PST (5:15 PM CET).  Msgr. Xavier d’Arodes de Peyriague, Vice Rector of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes will celebrate mass in English. Frà Alessandro de Franciscis, Knight of Justice in Solemn Vows, Permanent Doctor and President of the Bureau of Medical Observations of Lourdes, will do the readings.

Below are the links to the Live Feed from Lourdes.  Please give yourself time to get to the website.  Both links share the same image and are included in case there is an issue with one.
