Relics of St. Anthony to visit Galway Cathedral

The Relics of Saint Anthony of Padua are being brought to Galway on Tuesday 22nd October, to mark the 750th Anniversary of their discovery by Saint Bonaventure. The Relics, which are usually kept at the Basilica in Padua, will be accompanied by the editor of the Messenger of Saint Anthony, Father Mario Conte, together with Greyfriars from Britain and Ireland. Though he died as long ago as 1231, St Anthony’s popularity has rarely waned over the centuries. He is widely revered as the Saint who helps people find lost things or people.

Their arrival in Dublin on 17 October at the parish of the Franciscan Conventual friars in Fairview in Dublin, will see the papal nuncio, Archbishop Charles Brown and the Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin lead a ceremony of welcome and Mass.
