St. Jean Vianney's Incorrupt Heart
His heart is usually kept in a shrine in Ars. But, from November through June, the relic will be touring the United States, under the sponsorship of the Knights of Columbus, with stops at some of the nation’s most well-known houses of worship, including St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, St. John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, D.C., and Basilica of the Sacred Heart at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.
Peter Sonski, education outreach and visitors service manager for the Knights of Columbus Museum, said venerating the relic seems to leave the faithful feeling “edified” and “grateful.” Our Council along with the Bellefonte Council provided a bus of fifty people for the pilgrimage to Altoona. Over 2000 pilgrims attended.
“Why else would you be drawn to come here today, as pilgrims who came here for that closeness, that heart-to-heart experience that God invites us all to share in?” - Bishop Mark Barchak
Knights pictured are from Lock Haven and belong to the Our Lady of Victory 4th Degree Assembly. The State Deputy and State Chaplain were also present.
Fr. Ralph thanks the council for their continual contribution to his school in Ghana. The Council sponsored a Breakfast in July that provided over $2,500 for the school.
