Mass honors ill, caregivers

Hundreds of the ill and their caregivers were honored at a special Mass in the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland Feb. 8 for World Day of the Sick, held annually worldwide on the date nearest the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes, Feb. 11. The event is a ministry of the Diocese of Oakland and is supported by the Order of Malta, which operates a medical clinic in the cathedral center. Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, greets people after the Mass, above; blessing attendees at right, center, Rev. James A. Schexnayder, and bottom, cathedral Rector Rev. Ray Sacca.
