Relics of Ss Louis and Zélie Martin and St Therese to visit Sligo Cathedral

As part of a national pilgrimage, the Relics of Saints Louis and Zélie Martin and their daughter, Saint Therese of Lisieux will visit the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Sligo on Wednesday 15th August 2018, arriving at 11.30am (until 9pm) and departing on Thursday 16th August after the 8.00am Mass.

The Relics of these three saints from the one family will be in Ireland for the World Meeting of Families 2018 and will be an integral part of the congress.  The Relics will be present in the RDS for the Opening Ceremony and will be in the sanctuary in the Phoenix Park for the Eucharist celebrated by Pope Francis.  

The Relics will travel throughout Ireland before and after the World Meeting to enable those who cannot attend the congress itself to be able to connect with the congress and its participants even from a distance, and to make their own personal veneration of these important Saints.
