St. Anthony’s friars pray for those who are sick and suffering

Entrust people who are sick or suffering to St. Anthony: we will remember them on 11 February 2020, World Day of Prayer for the Sick

“May the Blessed Virgin,  Health of the Sick and Mother of the Living, be our support and our hope.”
Pope John Paul II

Saint Anthony is the Saint of Miracles, and those who are sick lovingly place their trust in his intercession.

If, among your family members or your friends, there is someone who is sick you may send us their names: on 11 February, World Day of Prayer for the Sick, we friars will pray for their healing.

In the Holy Mass we will celebrate in the Basilica we will invoke upon them the blessings of Saint Anthony and God’s grace.

You will be able to follow the 8:15am Holy Mass on live streaming.
