A Healing Mass is held in the upper Shrine at 2:00 pm every third Sunday of the month from September through May.

Each Healing Mass is preceded by confessions at 1:30 pm in the Lower Shrine.

The community of faith gathers to pray for Saint Rita's healing intercession. After the homily, there will be an anointing with blessed Saint Rita oil. Each Mass is followed by the recitation of the Saint Rita Novena prayers and reverencing of her relics.

Healing Masses are presided by guest celebrants, Augustinian friars from various ministries and communities throughout the Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova.
