WHAT: Sneak Peak of Relics of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
The Diocese of Rockville Centre will make the first class relics of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque available for viewing exclusively by the news media. These relics will be venerated at eight locations throughout Long Island from August 16-August 23, 2010.
In addition, the news media will be able to see the Vatican Exhibit, “The Eucharistic Miracles of the World” which will be on display in the Cathedral.
In 1674, Sr. Margaret Mary Alacoque had a vision of the Sacred Heart and the Lord instructed her to spread the love of His heart and that he would reveal his graces through her.
There will be opportunities to interview diocesan representatives about the relics.
WHEN: Monday, August 16, 2010 from 1:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
