Mass and Prayer Service for Sydney Archbishop

Published: Thursday 7th January 2016

ACU together with Catholic Youth Services and University of Notre Dame are organising a Mass and Prayer Service for the speedy recovery of His Grace, Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP from his current illness.

Archbishop Fisher OP is recovering in hospital after being diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome and took ill just prior to Christmas.

He was admitted to St Vincent's Hospital following an infection which was complicated by an immune-related pathology.

Symptoms include varying degrees of muscle weakness, and while its onset is sudden and unexpected, the great majority of people make a full recovery. The Archbishop has responded well to medical treatment.

5.00pm: Vigil Mass for the Baptism of the Lord.
6.15pm: Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament (a time of silent prayer interspersed with hymns and formal prayers).
7.30pm: Benediction and Conclusion.

Location: Sacred Heart Parish, 180 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst (next to St Vincent’s Hospital complex).
