Saturday, February 2nd is the Feast of St. Blaise. St. Blaise was a 4th century martyr and Bishop of Armenia and the patron of those who suffer from diseases of the throat. The blessing of St. Blaise is a sign of our faith in God’s protection and love for us and for the sick. We will be offering the blessing of the throats at the end of all masses in place of the final blessing this weekend.
