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, a Healing Mass is held each year on the Sunday closest to St. Odilia's July 18 Feast Day, in the midst of the annual national novena to St. Odilia. The Crosier Priory at Onamia also offers Healing Masses during Advent and Lent.
The Crosier Community of Phoenix also hosts a Healing Mass closest to the Feast Day of St. Odilia, and at other times of the year.
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 national novena begins on July 10 and ends on her feast day, July 18. The daily prayers are available here.
