Missouri Area Celebrates World Day of the Sick and the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes


Knights and Dames of the Missouri Area gathered for Mass and the rosary with Magistral Chaplain, Msgr. Vernon Gardin, in celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and the World Day of the Sick. During Mass, Msgr. Gardin did a special blessing of the members’ scapulars, as a special reminder of the love and promises of our loving mother, Mary.

Following the Mass and rosary, members gathered together for dinner and an update on the strategic plan and the local works that support the Order’s charism.
