Saint Corona is invoked as patron Saint against plague and epidemics.
Her feast day is celebrated on May 14.
Almighty God, who forgive the sins of your people and heal all their faults, you who call the Lord our healer and sent your beloved Son to bear our sickness, look upon us who stand humbly before You. We pray to You in this time of plague and need, remember Your love and kindness that You have always shown to Your people in times of tribulation. Just as You graciously looked upon Aaron's atonement and stopped the plague that broke out, just as You accepted David's sacrifice and commanded the destroying angel to withdraw his hand, accept also today our prayer and sacrifice and show us mercy. Keep this disease away from us, allow those affected to be healed, protect those who have been preserved from it so far by Your goodness, and do not let the plague spread any further.
Holy Mary, health of the sick, pray for us! Saint Corona, pray for us!
Saint Sebastian, pray for us!
Saint Roch, pray for us!

This is normally the time I write of the many events we have planned for Holy Week. However, that will not be the case this year. The priests of the Marshfield Deanery will celebrate many of the Holy Week liturgies together, and we invite you to watch these events either by live streaming or as your schedule may allow you to join us spiritually. (Details are in the bulletin, on the website and on our Facebook page)
Please know each of you, your families and loved ones will be held up in prayer as we continue this difficult time.
May God’s blessings remain with each of you and your loved ones.
