Healing Prayers Offered at Lenten Pilgrimage

The National Shrine of Mary, Mother of the Church hosted a Lenten Pilgrimage of Healing on Thursday, March 30, 2023. Pilgrims had an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, available in both English and Spanish, before Mass; and adoration and healing prayer were offered following Mass.

Father Norbert Rappold, from the Diocese of Little Rock, celebrated Mass and offered a healing prayer and laying of hands to those who attended. Father Rappold has said he has seen God move in miraculous ways through his devotion to Jesus Christ and the Blessed Mother. He actively prays for healing in his parish, area hospital and nursing homes, at conferences, and at Healing Masses.
