Wednesday, March 21st at St. Ambrose Parish
7:00 PM @ St. Augustine, 30 Caputo Rd., North Branford
Special event for veneration of Relics of Christ's Passion!
Join us at St. Augustine on March 21st at 7:00pm for a unique encounter with nine rare Relics of Christ’s Passion to set the tone for your Lenten devotions. Having the opportunity to be in the presence of these holy relics while they are here in the area is sure to be an experience that will help you connect with the very roots of your faith.
Take advantage of this opportunity to venerate these holy relics and participate in a program that allows you to engage in a unique commemoration of Jesus’ walk to Calvary. This powerful program is a one-hour presentation supported with music and meditation. A collection like this is generally seen only in Rome or the Holy Land.
The Relics of the Passion collection includes: A piece of the True Cross which was discovered by St. Helena, a piece of the Holy Table from the room where the Last Supper took place, a piece of the Column of Flagellation, a piece of the Crown of Thorns, a replica of the Holy Nail (fashioned using filing from the true nails), A relic (bone) of St, Longinus - the centurion who pierced the side of Christ, a picture of the Veil of Veronica touched to the original with a Vatican seal attesting to the fact, a piece of the exterior wrapping for the Shroud of Turin and Relics of the Holy Apostles.
A piano concert given by Maria Andriasova-Esparza on Wednesday, March 21, 4:30 pm at the Legion of Christ College, 475 Oak Avenue, Cheshire.
Ms Andriasova-Esparza will perform various Catholic pieces.
