The Spiritual Life Committee of Holy Name of Jesus Parish presents Treasures of the Church, a teaching and exposition of sacred relics, on Saturday March 1st at 1 pm. Holy Name of Jesus Church is at 690 Woodbury Road, Woodbury (516) 921-2334
Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross will be here with his very special ministry to teach about these holy objects. (His teaching and presentation will take place at 1p.m.). He will bring with him over 150 relics, some as old as 2000 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.
