Tour of Relics of St. Anthony of Padua Begins in Diocese

August 26 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The tour of two first-class and precious relics of the Portuguese-born saint, St. Anthony of Padua, begins this day in Falmouth and continues in parishes in several other locales through Saturday, August 31. Please find the complete schedule here.

Conventual Franciscan Father Alessandro Ratti will bring the holy relics from the saint’s Basilica, St. Anthony of Padua, in Padua, Italy. Father Alex, as he is known, is one of 54 priests of the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor Conventual  who minister in the Basilica where the saint is buried. The two exquisite reliquaries, one of which contains layers of skin of the saint’s cheek and the other a fragment of his floating rib, have been venerated by Pope Francis, Pope Benedict, St. Mother Teresa, St. John Paul II and Servant of God, Sister Lucia of Fatima.
