    thanks so much for sharing this! I am in NY and some of us from homeschool group are hoping to get there on Wed for the Latin Mass, or maybe even a lot of the day. Fr. Carlos Martins doesn’t have any schedule posted for the Treasures of the Church relic tour or St. Maria Goretti’s relic/Pilgrimage of Mercy, but both are amazing and the sites say that tours coming later in year so I wanted to pass info on in case you didn’t already have. He has come to a church in my area with both of these presentations. He does a terrific talk and then in the case of the Treasures of the Church tour there is an unbelievable display of about 150 relics that you can venerate. anyway, maybe you are aware of all this, but in case not here are links:Home – Treasures of the Church

      Thank you for letting me know about it! We post the Treasures of the Church schedule on the relics and events page on an ongoing basis. It hasn’t come anywhere near my area yet, but I’m hoping to get to see the exhibit myself this year. I was able to see the relics of Maria Goretti and meet Father Martins then. If you’re making the trip to Connecticut, check the “Sites by States” page. There are a couple of pilgrimage site locations for Connecticut as well as many for New York and the neighboring states. Have a wonderful trip!
