The Order of the Knights of Saint Columba, in collaboration with the Hierarchies of the Roman Catholic Church in England, Wales & Scotland, is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated National Relic Tour 2023. This extraordinary event aims to bring communities together, foster spiritual growth, and celebrate the rich heritage of the Catholic faith.
The National Relic Tour 2023 will showcase a collection of Sacred Relics of immense historical and spiritual significance. These Relics, revered by millions of Catholics worldwide, offer a unique opportunity for believers to deepen their faith, seek solace, and draw inspiration from the lives of saints who have played an instrumental role in shaping the Church’s history.
During this inspiring journey, the National Relic Tour 2023 will visit numerous Dioceses across England, Wales, and Scotland, providing an exceptional chance for individuals from all walks of life to encounter these cherished Relics. The tour’s itinerary will include visits to several Cathedrals, Parishes, and other significant Catholic landmarks in England, Wales and Scotland, inviting both locals and Pilgrims from afar to come and experience this spiritual event.
The Relics on display encompass a diverse array of Saints, each with their own compelling story and heavenly intercession. Among the treasures to be showcased are Relics of Saint Andrew, Apostle and Martyr, who was the brother of Saint Peter the First Pope; Relics of Saint Margaret of Scotland, whose charity and piety was well known throughout her realm; and Relics of Saint Columba of Iona, the patron saint of The Order of the Knights of Saint Columba, renowned for his missionary work and founding of monasteries.
