Healing Masses in honor of St. Odilia, Patroness of the Blind and Afflicted and Patroness of the Crosiers, are celebrated three times each year at Holy Cross Church in Onamia, Minnesota, the home of the National Shrine of St. Odilia, and in Phoenix, Arizona.
In Onamia, the Healing Mass will be held July 14 at the conclusion of the annual national novena to St. Odilia. The Crosier Priory at Onamia also offers Healing Masses during Advent and Lent.
These Healing Masses are an opportunity for pilgrims to come and celebrate the healing petitions and ministry that are the heart of this devotion. The sacrament of the anointing of the sick is celebrated, and at the end of Mass, personal blessings with the ancient relics of St. Odilia are offered.
The Mass is free and all are welcome! A brunch will follow the Mass. The suggested offering for the brunch is $10 per person. For more information about the Healing Mass or to RSVP for the brunch, contact the filial priory at 320-532-3103.
