Relics of St. Damien, Priest & LeperPosted: 03/09/2011
By a special arrangement with the Archdiocese of Honolulu, the relics of St. Damien deVeuster, the famous Leper Priest of Molokai, will be visiting the Diocese of Tulsa, from April 5ththrough April 8th.
The lay faithful are encouraged to venerate these relics and grow in the love for Christ whose grace inspired such heroic virtue in this missionary priest, finally achieving a level of such holiness that Damien was canonized last October by Pope Benedict XVI.
During the time that the relic will be in Tulsa, there will be veneration at Holy Family Cathedral, St. Piux X, St. Joseph’s Residence, Bishop Kelley High School and Clear Creek Monastery.
