The Knights of Columbus is organizing this “Heart of a Priest” relic pilgrimage honoring the patron of parish priests, whose holiness and integrity is a model for clergy and laity alike. We hope as many Knights and their families as possible will be able to venerate this relic.
Please share the details of this rare opportunity with your pastor and perhaps request he make an announcement.
