Church of the Little Flower

The Rose Mass is organized to invoke God's blessings on the medical, dental, nursing and allied workers and the many health care institutions in the Archdiocese of Washington. In addition, the Mass provides an opportunity to acknowledge in special fashion the splendid work of the volunteers of the Catholic Charities Health Care Network and a priest or religious involved in the health care ministry. This Network is composed of a multitude of dedicated workers of all religious persuasions infused with an ecumenical spirit in their care of the sick. The Rose Mass also provides an opportunity to give thanks for all the work of the many priests, religious and lay people involved in health care related ministry.

This year, Donald Cardinal Wuerl is our principal celebrant and Arlington Bishop Michael Burbidge is our homilist. Immediately afterward, you are welcome to join us for a luncheon honoring the following:
