Saints Among Us


“Treasures of the Church,” an exposition of more than 150 sacred relics visited St. Helena’s parish in the Bronx March 5 and St. Anthony’s parish in Nanuet Feb. 28. Father Carlos Martins, C.C., of the Companions of the Cross, accompanied the Vatican collection, which included relics of St. Helena, St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua and many other saints. The ministry travels throughout the world by invitation and will be in the tri-state area through April 10.
