Saint Anthony’s October visit to Boston

Follow us on

Two relics of Saint Anthony from the Basilica in Padua will be brought to the Boston area in Massachusetts by Fr. Mario Conte from Friday 6 to Sunday 15 October.

One of the reliquaries contains the Saint’s ‘floating rib’, and was venerated by both Pope Francis, when he was Archbishop Jorge Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, and by Sister Lucy, one of the three seers of Fatima, when it was taken to her convent, the Monastery of Carmelite nuns at Coimbra, in January 1995. The reliquary, therefore, has special meaning this year as we celebrate the centenary of the Fatima apparitions.
