Feast Day of St Blaise

Feast Day of St Blaise - February 3, 2024
On February 3, the Feast Day of St. Blaise, the Church recalls a miracle cure associated with him and celebrates the blessing of the throats with candles. St. Blaise said that anyone who lit a candle in his memory would be free of infection, thus candles are used in the traditional throat blessing.
The blessing of St Blaise will be given after the 10.00am and 6.15pm Masses in St Patrick's Church, on Saturday.
