Anointing and Benediction of the Sick at Assumption Grotto.

On the Feast of the Assumption, Assumption Grotto Parish in Detroit, Michigan, USA, has significant devotions, confessions, and beautiful Masses throughout the day.

Following the Sacrament, the Pastor, Fr. Eduard Perrone, does Benediction of the Sick with the Blessed Sacrament.
