30th World Day of the Sick: 11 February

We’ve all had some experience of sickness and frailty at certain times of our lives. We also personally know people who are unwell at this time – among them some Brigidine Sisters, our family members, friends, associates, partners in ministry, Covid sufferers or people we visit as part of our ministries of outreach and care.

Pope Francis has released his message for the 30th World Day of the Sick on 11 February 2022 urging us and Church-run institutions to continue every effort to heal and soothe the wounds of those suffering physical or mental illness.

His message may be accessed at the following link:


We continue to pray for those suffering poor health at this time and will do all we can in our own way to support and care for them.
