June 2017: Saint Anthony's Relics visit the USA, Canada and Australia

The precious relics of our Saint will be in the USA (June 9 to 18), in Canada (June 9 to 18) and in Australia (June 6 to 21).

Follow us on

As usual, friars from the Basilica of Saint Anthony will leave Padua this June to take relics of our Saint to his devotees around the world: three of them will take some of St. Anthony’s relics to the United States (June, 9 to 18), Canada (June, 9 to 18) and Australia (June, 6 to 21).

As far as the English-speaking world is concerned, Fr. Alessandro Ratti will be in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, Fr. Paolo Floretta in the Toronto area, Fr. Louis Cenci in the Lac-Bouchette, Quebec area (mainly in French), and Fr. Mario Conte will be in the Australian states of Adelaide, Victoria and finally in the Sydney area.
