Relics of St John Vianney on Display
St. John Mary Vianney, the patron saint of priests, and on whose 150th Dies Natalis the Catholic world celebrates the Year for Priests, will be venerated through his relics in time for the Second National Congress of the Clergy on January 25-29, 2010 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
The exposition and visit of the relics of St. John Mary Vianney will officially begin at the National Shrine of the Sacred Heart in San Antonio Village, and end at the St. John Mary Vianney Parish in Barangay Cembo, two churches that were decreed “Pilgrim Churches on the Year for Priests.” This means that people who undertake pilgrimages and pious exercises at these churches during the Year for Priests are granted plenary indulgence (under the ordinary conditions) as decreed by the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See.
The schedule of the relics’ exposition is as follows:
(Jan 23) National Shrine of the Sacred Heart at 11 am
(Jan 24); EDSA Shrine at 12 noon
(Jan 25-29) 2nd Natl Congress of the Clergy (WTC)
