Sacred Relics of the Saints at St. Mary

SOLON– A teaching and exposition of Sacred Relics is coming to St. Mary Catholic Church in Solon on Thursday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross will be present to teach about over 150 holy objects, some as old as 2,000 years. Among the treasures will be relics of 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.
In addition, there will also be present a portion of the veil of Our Lady, as well as 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.
In the Church’s history, many miracles and healings have been worked in the presence of relics, and many have been healed through this ministry. 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. You can learn more at www.treasuresofthechurch.com.
