Relics to visit Diocese

The Carmelites have arranged that the relics of Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, and their youngest daughter, Saint Thérèse, will come from Lisieux to Ireland to coincide with the World Meeting of Families 2018. The Relics will be at the WMOF2018 Opening Ceremony in the RDS, Dublin, on Tuesday, August 21, and they will also be in the sanctuary in the Phoenix Park for the Papal Mass on Sunday, August 26. 

The Relics will also travel to several places across Ireland before and after WMOF2018. Each place that will receive the Relics will organise their own liturgical celebrations and times for veneration. 

The relics will be in the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, Waterford from 11.00am on 2nd September to 9.00am (3rd September).

More details of the prayer celebrations surrounding this event will follow shortly.
