Blessing of the Throat


February 3rd is the feast of St. Blaise and this is when the Church traditionally blesses throats.

The Blessing of the Throats, asking for protection from ailments of the throat and other diseases, will be celebrated after Adoration Mass on February 3rd and after the weekend Masses on February 4th and 5th.  We invite all parishioners to participate in this tradition immediately following Mass.

Prayer in Honor of St. Blaise

O GOD, deliver us through the intercession
of Thy holy bishop and martyr Blaise,
from all evil of soul and body,
especially from all ills of the throat;

and grant us the grace to make a good confession
in the confident hope of obtaining Thy pardon,
and ever to praise with worthy lips
Thy most holy name. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
