“With confidence, tell the Madonna and her son Jesus about your expectations, your hopes, your joys and your sufferings, and trust in the help of Jesus and the support of Mary.” – Pope Francis
Mark your calendars and please plan on joining us…
To celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy and to honor Our Lady of Lourdes, we will be hosting a Eucharistic Holy Hour/Healing Service here at Our Lady of Solitude Chapel.
WHEN: Saturday, February 13th @ 4 p.m.
There will be time for silent Eucharistic Adoration, the recitation of prayers for mercy and healing, a homily, individual benediction (those who wish may kneel at the altar rail and Father will bring the the Most Blessed Sacrament to you individually – then after a few moments will give bless you), and will conclude with the praying of Vespers. Priests will be available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, both before and after the Holy Hour.
We chose this date (Feb. 13th) because it is the Saturday closest to the celebration of Our Lady of Lourdes. As some may know, many many folks have gone to Lourdes seeking a miraculous healing. And, in fact, there have been countless healings there, through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes. And so to honor her and in petition for whatever healing we desire (be it physical, emotional, psychological, healing of memory, etc) – during this Jubilee of Mercy – we will approach Jesus’ Heart of Mercy in the Most Blessed Sacrament, and counting on the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes!

Wonderful! Thank you.
I have had the great privilege and joy of having visited Lourdes on three different occasions. Any mention of this holy place calls up such precious memories. While the town has an almost carnival atmosphere, once you enter the gates of the Shrine, you are overcome by the atmosphere of prayer that pervades. The presence of the Lord is palpable. The faith of the pilgrims, especially those seeking healing is very obvious. Participating in the nightly candle light procession and reciting the Rosary with hundreds of others is a truly moving experience. I am so glad that you will be remembering the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes in such a beautiful and prayerful manner. She will, I am sure, grant many graces during this celebration.
