Day of the Sick Mass honors Our Lady
of Lourdes

About 200 people, friends, family, caregivers and the sick, attended the annual Day of the Sick Mass on Feb. 9 at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, above. The annual worldwide event in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes this year also marked the 900th anniversary of the founding of the Knights of Malta. Established to care for pilgrims during the time of the Crusades, it lives on today as a humanitarian network. About 40 of the Western Association Knights and Dames attended the Oakland Mass. At left, Archbishop Alex J. Brunett anoints an attendee.
