Pilgrimage Opportunity of a Lifetime, Just a 30 Minute Drive Away

The Diocese of Jefferson City is hosting a tour of relics of Blessed Carlo Acutis and Saint Manuel Gonzalez Garcia as part of the National Eucharistic Revival “The Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit”. As part of this tour, the relics will be stopping at St. Peter Parish in Marshall on Tuesday, July 11th. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be in the presence of relics of two Catholics who were devoted to the miracle of the Eucharist, and the blessings that flow from receiving the gift of the Eucharist.

What makes these relics even more relevant to us today is they are both from a group of modern day saints or those who have been beatified.  Blessed Carlo Acutis was a Catholic Italian boy who died in 2006 at the age of 14. At a young age, his love of, and devotion to, the Eucharist led him to create a website bringing awareness of Eucharistic miracles throughout the world. You can still visit his website today to see Eucharistic miracles in your area of the world. Saint Manuel Gonzalez Garcia was a Spanish bishop who died in 1940, and was canonized as a Saint in 2016. He believed and taught that through adoration before the Blessed Sacrament one would find all the answers they sought.

Join us on Tuesday, July 11th as we make a pilgrimage to St. Peter Parish in Marshall. We will meet at 4pm in the parking lot of St. Patrick Chapel to caravan to Marshall. The exhibit program starts at 5pm, with talks and prayer opportunities and ends at 8pm. If you can’t join us for the caravan, meet us in Marshall for this amazing chance to be in the presence of these relics.
