Saint Peregrine Day
Bishop William P. Callahan was the principal celebrant of the Mass for the Sick at 12:15 pm, joined by Shrine rector Father Jacinto and La Crosse diocesan priest Father Dan Oudenhoven. Also assisting was Deacon Matt Marshall.
Prior to the conclusion of Mass, the first-class relics of Saint Peregrine were presented for Veneration.
God wants us to have a life that is amazing, a life that is complete, a life that is full. ‘Your sins are forgiven’ and ‘Get up and walk!’
After the conclusion of Mass, those with cancer or other serious illnesses were invited to stay for the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Bishop Callahan was assisted by Fr. Jacinto, Msgr. Matthew Malnar, and Fr. Dan Oudenhoven.
