This week, Thursday 11th Feb. is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and also the World Day of the Sick.
At 12 noon Bishop Fintan will be celebrating Mass from the Mercy Hospital, Cork.
As a diocesan family we can be as one in prayer and solidarity with the sick and in thanksgiving for healthcare workers in hospitals, residential care facilities and homes throughout the Diocese.
In his message for World Day of the Sick 2021 Pope Francis says that it gives an “opportunity to devote special attention to the sick and to those who provide them with assistance and care both in healthcare institutions and within families and communities”.
The Mass will be live-streamed so that as many people as possible can participate from hospitals, nursing homes, other residential settings and family homes.
