Feast of St Blaise

st blaise

Feast of St. Blaise – Wednesday, 3rd February. Tradition says St. Blaise was a physician before becoming a bishop. He is venerated as patron of those who suffer from disease of the throat. We cannot have the usual Blessing of the Throats this year, however a symbolic blessing of the throats will take place over the webcam on Wednesday at 10 o’clock Mass, if you would like to hold your own candles, or your hand, to your throat while the Blessing is taking place.
