Don Bosco's Relic to Visit St. Petersburg, Florida!
n contrast to a traditional pilgrimage in which one would travel to Italy to venerate the relics of St. John Bosco, the relics are traveling to the faithful around the world. This allows for those who have benefitted from the ministry of the Salesians of Don Bosco or have a devotion to St. John Bosco to make a pilgrimage without having to travel to Italy. This is truly in keeping with the work of John Bosco who always felt it important to go to the people to whom he ministered.
The relics will be located at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle and there will be a series of prayer services and presentations as well as opportunity for quiet prayer and reflection throughout the relics' visit. Highlights include the welcoming prayer service and a Mass to be celebrated by Bishop Lynch at 8:15 AM on Thursday, September 23 in the Cathedral.
