St. Frances Cabrini Shrine Exhibit: ‘What is a Relic?’

Why do Catholics venerate relics of saints? Is the practice superstitious, Biblical, or something else?

A new exhibit at St. Frances Cabrini Shrine explores the fascinating role sacred relics have played in faith over the centuries. It examines the use of relics in the early church, delves into how the Church authenticates them today, and presents over 20 first-class relics from the collection of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for veneration.

“Thousands of pilgrims come to the Shrine each year to draw closer to Mother Cabrini both physically and spiritually,” says Julia Attaway, Executive Director of the Shrine. “But there are also people who wander in and wonder exactly what the story is with relics.” The exhibit is designed to answer their questions. A free companion brochure provides background on each saint along with prayers to get started.

The exhibit is open to the public at all times the Shrine is open:
(Tues-Sunday 10-5, closed Monday)
