Blessing of the Sick Service

First Friday of every month
Location: St. Francis of Assisi Parish, 1927 N. Fourth Street, Milwaukee WI, 53212

St. Francis of Assisi Parish will be offering a monthly Blessing of the Sick Service on the first Friday of each month at 2 PM. A similar service has been celebrated for many years in Detroit in commemoration of Venerable Fr. Solanus Casey, OFM Capuchin.

The Blessing of the Sick Service addresses the widespread need for many kinds of healing in people’s lives. It will incorporate Scripture, prayers of intercession and thanksgiving, a blessing with a relic of the True Cross, and Communion. This Blessing has ancient roots in the Church, dating back to the 6th century abbot, Saint Maurus.
