At the behest of Bishop Cote we are very excited to announce that the Diocese of Norwich has been blessed with the opportunity, through the Knights of Columbus, to host the major relic of St. Jean Vianney on December 13, 2018 at the Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes in Gales Ferry.

The evening begins at 5pm with a time of quiet visitation and prayer with the relic followed by our Monthly Holy Hour for Vocations and finally an opportunity to venerate/touch the reliquary holding the relic.

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 welcome 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.
