KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS NATIONWIDE TOUR OF CURÉ OF ARS HEART
The Shrine of Ars, France, has entrusted to the Knights of Columbus the major relic of St. Jean Vianney's incorrupt heart for a national tour in the U.S. from November 2018 through early June 2019.
The Knights of Columbus welcomes this special opportunity to offer for veneration a major relic of the patron of parish priests, whose holiness and integrity is a model for clergy and laity alike. This holy relic will be at St. John the Evangelist Parish in Paducah, KY on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 from 10:00am - 8:00pm. Opening Mass begins at 10:00am with Bishop Medley. Veneration throughout the day with public prayer on the top of each hour. Closing with Compline (Night Prayer) at 7:45pm
What is a relic? In Catholic tradition, a relic is an object associated with a saint that may be offered to the faithful for veneration. Since the soul of a saint is united with God in heaven, an object associated with a saint is meant to draw a person closer to God. Neither the relic nor the saint are to be worshipped.
