World Day of Prayer for the Sick

World Day of the sick was fittingly celebrated at St. Joseph’s Home, Ferrybank, Waterford, when Father Walsh blessed the hands of all those involved in caring for the sick.

Blessed be these hands that have touched life.         Blessed be these hands that have felt pain.                       Blessed be these hands that have embraced with compassion.                                                              Blessed be these hands that grow wrinkled with age.    Blessed be these hands, we hold the future in these hands

We gathered at reception and from there processed to the chapel, singing and praying the rosary

The chaplain Father Cyprian then administered the Sacrament of the Sick to the residents who approached to receive it.

Special thanks to all who helped where help was needed.

Ave, Ave, Ave Maria.
