Help for attendees at Day of the Sick

Members of the Order of Malta will be available to provide assistance to those with mobility issues who are attending the sixth annual World Day of the Sick.

The event that honors the ill and their caregivers begins with a special Mass in the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland at 11 a.m. Feb. 7.

Persons living with any serious or acute illness and their families and caregivers are invited to participate. Arrival by 10:30 a.m. is recommended. Three hours of free Cathedral Garage parking are provided to Mass attendees. No RSVP is necessary and there is no cost.

Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, will preside at Mass. The Sacrament of the Sick, a blessing of caregivers and health care providers, the distribution of holy water from the Marian shrine at Lourdes, France, and a reception in the Event Center will also take place.

World Day of the Sick was initiated by Pope John Paul II in 1992 and is 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.

The Cathedral of Christ the Light is at 2121 Harrison St., Oakland. For more information: www.oakdiocese.org/WDS.

The Order of Malta serves the sick, and assists with many charities, including a medical clinic in the cathedral center.
