As Holy Week draws near, please consider commemorating the liturgical season of Lent by attending the Relics of the Passion prayer program at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, D.C. This unique event, organized in conjunction with the Apostolate for Holy Relics, is a rare opportunity to venerate eight relics of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ in a program of prayer and meditations. It will take place on Saturday, March 28th at 10:00am and 3:00pm.

Among the relics that will be available for veneration during the program are: a piece of the Crown of Thorns, a piece of the True Cross, and a piece of the table from the Last Supper. Venerated previously by over a million people across the United States and around the world, this event is the first time that these extraordinary relics of the Passion will be at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine.
