World Day of the Sick

Starts: Thursday, February 11th 2021 at 12:00 pm
Ends: Thursday, February 11th 2021 at 12:50 pm

On World Day of the Sick which is celebrated on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes (Feb 11th), Bishop Fintan Gavin will celebrate Mass in Mercy University 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.  

He is inviting people to join him in the Mass on Thursday 11th February at 12noon via live-stream.

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.
