+  Major relic of priest renowned for holiness to visit Detroit

  • Description: A major relic of France’s St. John Vianney, who is held up as the ideal for Catholic priests, will visit the Archdiocese of Detroit this month as part of a national relic pilgrimage hosted by the Knights of Columbus. The tour has been dubbed “Heart of a Priest,” which refers to the physical heart of John Vianney that has resisted decay for more than 150 years, as well as to the good character all priests are called to embrace. The saint’s incorrupt heart, contained in a special casing and visible to the faithful, will be available for public veneration at two locations: • St. John Vianney Parish, 54045 Schoenherr Road in Shelby Township Saturday, March 30 from 2-8 p.m. with Mass at 5 p.m. • Sacred Heart Major Seminary, 2701 Chicago Boulevard in Detroit Sunday, March 31 from 11:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
