St. Richard Parish and the Diocese of Helena are very pleased to host Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross as he presents the Exposition of Sacred Relics on May 26th at 6 p.m.

The exposition begins with a multi-media presentation on the Church’s use of relics that is scriptural, catechetical, and devotional, leading to a renewal of the Catholic faith for many people.  After the teaching those in attendance have an opportunity to venerate the relics of some of their favorite saints among some 150 relics.

Relics include those of St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux (the “Little Flower”), St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Faustina Kowalska. The supreme highlight is one of the largest relics of the Church’s claim to the True Cross in the world and a piece of the Veil that, according to sanctioned tradition, is believed to have belonged to Our Lady.

Special Plenary Indulgence from Pope Francis:

The Holy Father has issued a special plenary indulgence for all attendees of a Treasures of the Church exposition. The decree is linked. The indulgence is granted under the usual conditions:

  1. Prayer for the Holy Father and for his intentions (These will occur on the day of the exposition).
  2. Reception of Sacramental Confession within 20 days of attending the exposition.
  3. Reception of The Holy Eucharist within 20 days of attending the exposition.
  4. Complete detachment from all sin, even venial.

Year of St. Joseph

Dec. 8, 2020 to Dec. 8 2021

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pope Pius IX’s declaration of St. Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church, Pope Francis proclaimed a special “Year of St. Joseph.”

It is a wonderful opportunity to increase our love for St. Joseph and knowledge, “to encourage us to implore his intercession and to imitate his virtues and his zeal” (Patris Corde).

Year of the Family

Pope Francis launched the “Amoris Laetitia Family” Year on March 19, 2021, the five-year anniversary of the publication of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia on the beauty and joy of love in the family.
The “Amoris Laetitia Family” Year is a time to reflect and gain a deeper appreciation of Amoris Laetitia and concretely experience its richness.
It is a year to celebrate the family so it can be placed at the center of commitment and care from every pastoral and ecclesial reality.
The “Amoris Laetitia Family” Year, will conclude on June 26, 2022, on the occasion of the X World Meeting of Families in Rome with the Holy Father.
“Let us make this journey as families, let us keep walking together. What we have been promised is greater than we can imagine. May we never lose heart because of our limitations, or ever stop seeking that fullness of love and communion which God holds out before us.” (AL 325)
