Exposition of Sacred Relics
Friday, September 24

Saint John the Baptist Parish will present a teaching and exposition of Sacred Relics this Friday, September 24 beginning at 6:30 pm with a presentation 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. After the presentation, the relics will be available to view in the Church Hall.

Among the treasures will be relics of St. Joseph, St. John the Baptist, 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.

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, which you will be able to touch to the reliquaries as a means of intercession. For most, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.


Stations of the Cross

We have prerecorded a STATIONS OF THE CROSS AND BENEDICTION video, for those who wish to pray this beautiful devotion at home. A Stations of the Cross Booket with all the prayers and Sacred Music is also available for viewing and download:
