Day of the sick

It is a good tradition in Albania that on the day of Our Lady of Lourdes, called "The day of the sick", all the parish churches organize Mass where sick faithful participate.
On February 10, this Mass was organized in the Cathedral of Laç Vau  Dejes and was celebrated by Msgr. Lucian Avgustini with the parish priest and other priests who were present.
On February 11, the Mass was organized in the Cathedral of Shkodra and was celebrated by Msgr. Angelo
Massafra, with the parish priest and other priests as well.
During these two Masses the presence of the Volunteers of "Malteser Albania" was important. In Laç Vau Dejes, the volunteers were to help sick people in need.
In Shkodra, the Volunteers were to collaborate with the Sisters of Mother Teresa "Missionaries of Charity" in transporting the sick children and old and sick people from their houses to the Church and vice-versa.
At the end of the two Masses, celebrants gave thanks to all those who helped in organizing the Masses, and a special thank was given to Malteser Albania.
There were eight Malteser volunteers taking part during two Masses and two cars were in service.
