Saints' Relics to Tour 2020
Catholic Mission has announced that the relics of St Thérèse of Lisieux (the patron of the missions) will tour Australia together with the relics of her parents Sts Louis and Zelie Martin.
The official tour commences on Febuary 1 2020, but the relics will be in Varroville from 22 January.
The parish will host the relics from 25 -28 January. There are many in our parish who have fond memories of the visit of St Thérèse's relics in 2002. It will be a great priviledge to have the Saints' relics with us, and for such an extended period of time.
Here is an outline of Saints' visit to Varroville:
