On Saturday 3 December 2016, Lourdes Day Mass celebrations were held in Sydney.

The Lourdes Day mass is an important event for the Order of Malta with Branches organising annual celebrations each year. The celebrations are open to all but those who are sick or facing health challenges and wanting good health are particularly encouraged to attend. They are assisted by a large number of volunteers, as well as Knights and Dames of the Order of Malta.

A blessing of good health takes place during the celebration of the Liturgy with water brought from the Shrine at Lourdes.
