Healing mass // first friday mass @ mater dolorosa

Every first Friday the COSJ priests and brothers celebrate a Healing Mass for physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual healing of all people, especially for those in the Archdiocese of San Francisco.

Sometimes accompanied by the Sisters of Carmel and other friends, the COSJ pray through the intercession of St. Joseph and St. Mary of the Mother of God.

Because of the connection of our foundation to St. Andre Bessette, every first Friday we bless those in attendance with the oil of St. Joseph. The oil of St. Joseph was used by St. Andre. During the late 19th century, St. Andre  was a poor and humble porter at the Notre Dame College in Cote-des-Neiges, Quebec. The Lord healed thousands of people in Canada because of his great faith in God and his devotion to St. Joseph. Through his intercession, and especially that of St. Joseph, we hope and have faith that many miracles will happen in the Archdiocese of San Francisco. 

All are invited!
