Sacred Relics of the Saints – Treasures of the Church
April 2 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm| Free
Corpus Christi Church in Lexington invites you to experience an extraordinary Vatican collection of over 150 relics, some as old as 2,000 years. Father Carlos Martins, a Vatican-appointed expert on relics, will present a teaching and exposition of Sacred Relics inside the church building on Saturday, April 2, at 1:00 p.m.
Among the treasures will be relics of 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. Those in attendance will be able to examine and venerate each relic.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own articles of devotion (i.e. rosaries, holy cards) and pictures of ill friends and family members, which you will be able to touch to the reliquaries as a means of intercession.
