St Francis Xavier Relic Veneration

Sun, 2018-01-14 08:00 - 20:00

This January, the famous relic of St Francis Xavier will visit North America for the first time in generations. It will visit Our Lady of Lourdes all day on Sunday, January 14th 2018. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to venerate the incorrupt first class relic of one of the greatest missionaries and evangelists since St Paul the Apostle. This relic is the right forearm and hand of St Francis Xavier. It is estimated that he baptized more than 100,000 people with this arm.


We anticipate three particular extraordinary graces in this visit, all related to the charisms of St Francis Xavier:

  1. conversion of souls;
  2. the raising up of missionary disciples who are abandoned to God’s will; and
  3. healing.
