In addition to our personal intentions, may we also pray for “a personalized approach to the sick, not just of curing but also of caring, in view of an integral human healing” (Holy Father’s words for 11 Feb 2020, the 28th World Day of the Sick and the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes)



Holy Family Church’s Legion of Mary sends a Pilgrim Statue of Mary around to each home. You may already have a statue of Mary in your home, however, this statue brings to mind the need to pray for peace in our hearts, peace in our families and peace in the world, and it carries with it a special grace for peace. Please open the door of your hearts and home to pray with our pilgrim statue for one week. You do not need to be a family.

Individual prayer is most welcome. You simply take the statue home from one of the weekend masses and return it the following weekend mass to the sacristy. Thank you for your prayers and participation.

The Bishops’ letter is posted on the CCCB website at as well as on our parish website at at the bottom of this page
