Unlike most pilgrimages, which usually involve an individual going to a sanctuary to venerate a saint, the Pilgrimage of Don Bosco’s Relic is actually bringing the relic to the people! The relic of Don Bosco has been transported to the United States to grant individuals an opportunity to honor and respect St. John Bosco. Archbishop Timothy Dolan formally invites the faithful of the Archdiocese to celebrate his favorite saint—Don Bosco.
Come see the relics of St. John Bosco at St. Patrick's Cathedral on Friday, October 1! There will be veneration of the relic from 10 AM to 11 PM. There will be a mass with Archbishop Dolan at 7 PM.
On Saturday, October 2 there will be veneration of the relic from 6:30 AM until 10 AM when the relic departs for Chicago. Come join us as we celebrate Don Bosco among us!
