SAINT PEREGRINE PRAYER SERVICE for healing takes place on the first Tuesday of every month, at 5:30 pm at St. Francis Church.  St. Peregrine has been called the “wonder worker” for his intercession on behalf of those living with serious illness.  He is the patron saint of all who are afflicted by cancer, leg ailments or any life-threatening disease.  The Service will consist of prayers for those who are ill and an individual blessing with the relic of St. Peregrine.  The Shrine of St. Peregrine at St. Francis of Assisi Church is affiliated with the National Shrine of St. Peregrine at the Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows in Chicago.  All are welcome to the Prayer Service on the first Tuesday of every month.
