(MARIA STEIN, OHIO OCTOBER 17, 2018) - On Sunday, November 11th, the Maria Stein Shrine of the Holy Relics invites you to “meet the new neighbors”!

Relics are not easy to acquire when one uses the proper, reputable channels and it's been 4 years since a new one has been added to the Shrine collection. St. Andre Bessette, St. Marianne Cope, BI Francis Xavier Seelos, BI Solanus Casey and St. Pope John Paul II will officially be welcomed to the Relic Chapel collection of Saints!

This family-friendly event will begin at 1:00pm with games and crafts on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Saint inspired snacks and appetizers will be available in the Gathering Space on the 1st floor. Then, at 3:00pm, there will be a special prayer service and relic veneration.

“This is a very exciting time for Shrine. Not since Sister Regina Albers, C.PP.S. added five modern saints relics to the collection in 2014 have we had the opportunity to learn about, pray with and venterate so many new Saints” stated Matt Hess, Director of Ministry and Hospitality at the Shrine “We hope families plan to attend this special event, as it’s an opportunity for them to have fun and grow spiritually together.”

This event is open to the public, no RSVP required. For more information, contact Matt Hess at 419-925-4532 or

Founded in 1875, the Maria Stein Shrine of the Holy Relics provides faith nourishment and spiritual renewal through opportunities for prayer and pilgrimage and inspiration from the lives of the saints. We invite you to visit, explore and enjoy an environment rich in holiness and history. For Shrine hours and event information, follow us on Facebook, Instagram or visit
