Blessing of St Blaise

On Wednesday next, 3rd February, we celebrate the feast of St Blaise; traditionally he is the patron saint of throats ‘and of other illnesses’. The Blessing of St Blaise, given with two crossed candles, asks the Lord’s protection from illnesses of the throat, and maladies in general. The blessing will be given during the 07:30 Mass at St Alphonse (in English), and during the 18:30 Mass (in French). All welcome.
