Every Mass is a healing Mass. Bring your intentions with you as you assist in its celebration. You may even request the priest's intention for the Mass if you allot enough time prior to its celebration.

Check the weekly Tablet. You should be able to pick up a copy at your parish. They list the healing masses, annointings of the sick and other special events at parishes, but there's nothing in Queens for this week for a healing Mass.

However, Our Lady of the Snows has an annointing of the sick at the 9:00 a.m. Saturday Mass, every Saturday, or you can make an appointment with a priest and he will come to her home.

Has your friend received the Anointing of the Sick? If not she should. That is a sacrament. A healing mass is usually not.

Every Mass is a sacrament (the Eucharist). That's why every mass is a "healing mass".

However, you are correct that a "healing service" that occurs after the conclusion of mass is not a sacrament.

Sorry, I meant that the "healing" usually done at these masses is not a sacrament. Sometimes they do offer the ANointing of the SIck at Mass. You know it is a sacrament if there is the laying on of hands and anointing with the Oil of the Sick and it is only a priest that does this.
