The Shrine of Ars, France, has entrusted to the Knights of Columbus the relic of St. Jean Vianney’s incorrupt heart for a national pilgrimage in the United States, and on Tuesday, April 23, it will be come to Maine. The relic will be available for veneration at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 307 Congress Street in Portland, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on that day.
St. Jean Vianney is the patron saint of parish priests, whose holiness and integrity is a model for clergy and laity alike. He was known for having a gift for teaching the faith and for spiritual direction, so much so that people from across France, including bishops, priests, and religious, would travel to see him and to seek his wisdom and guidance.
The pilgrimage is supported by the Knights of Columbus. FMI about the pilgrimage, click here. To learn more about St. Jean Vianney, click here. To learn more about relics, click here. To view a poster of the cathedral event, click here.
