Sacred Relics Of The Saints:
Treasures Of The Church
Tuesday, September 28 at 6:30pm in the Church
Saint Helen presents a teaching and exposition of Sacred Relics on Tuesday September 28 at 6:30 pm in the church. Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross will be here with an extraordinary Vatican collection of over 150 relics, some as old as 2000 years. Among the treasures will be relics of St. Helen, St. Joseph, St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux (the “Little Flower”), St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Faustina Kowalska.
There will also be a portion of the Veil of Our Lady and one of the largest remaining pieces of the True Cross in the world.
The teaching presents the basic Gospel message: that God is here right now and desires to be encountered; He touches us through the lives and the remains of His Saints. Those in attendance will be able to examine and venerate each relic. Throughout history, many healings have been worked in the presence of relics; and thousands have occurred through this ministry. Do not miss this opportunity. You are encouraged to bring your articles of devotion (such as rosaries, holy cards, etc.) and pictures of ill friends/family members. For most, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Please spread the word.
Plenary Indulgence from Pope Francis
The Holy Father has issued a plenary indulgence for all attendees of a Treasures of the Church exposition.
