February 11, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and World Day of the Sick, was marked in a special way at Queen of Peace Residence. At 4:30 p.m., everyone who was able gathered in the chapel for a time of prayer and the blessing of the sick. Monsignor Joseph Jude Gannon, pastor of Saint Gerard Majella Parish in Hollis, New York, exposed the Blessed Sacrament and allowed a time for prayer before giving a reflection. Afterward, he went around the chapel to bless everyone. He was then accompanied by two Little Sisters who carried lighted candles to the rooms of the Residents who were not able to come to the chapel. The blessing concluded with benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
