Throat Blessings for St. Blaise!

"Through the intercession of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from every disease of the throat and every other illness. Amen!"

As a part of the Holy Redeemer Parish, Masses at the Campus Religious Center are supported by all of the priests of our Area Faith Communities.  The special celebrations and sacramentals that are a part of parish life are extended to our community at the Campus as well.  February 3rd is the feast day for St. Blaise celebrated in the West.  During his lifetime, he is credited with miraculously saving a boy from choking on a fishbone (Click to learn more about St. Blaise) and became the patron saint of those with throat ailments.

On the Sunday after his feast day, a blessing of the throats was offered to those who attended each of the Masses in our Area Faith Communities.  We especially appreciate the willingness of Ethan and Jon, two of our college students, to assist with administering the throat blessings.  Join us for Mass at 6pm on Sunday evenings to become a part of our parish community!
