Saint Peregrine Cancer Guild
The Saint Peregrine Cancer Guild is named after Saint Peregrine Laziosi (1260-1345), the patron saint of persons suffering from cancer, who was a member of the Order Of The Servants of Mary (Servites). At the age of 60 he was diagnosed with cancer of the leg. On the night before a scheduled amputation of his leg, he experienced a trance-like sleep in which he saw Jesus curing him from the cross. Upon waking, he discovered that his leg was completely healed. He was canonized by Pope Benedict XIII in 1726.
Members of the Saint Peregrine Cancer Guild are remembered for one year in a Holy Mass celebrated at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the first Monday of every month. The annual enrollment fee is $25. The enrollee may be living, deceased or the family member of a person suffering from cancer.
A first-class relic of Saint Peregrine is on display for veneration by the faithful, especially persons suffering from cancer, at a side aisle shrine dedicated to the saint in the Shrine Church.
