Veneration - 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Mass - 12:10 PM

Bishop Peter A. Libasci will celebrate Mass with the relic present.


The heart relic of St Jean Vianney is displayed for veneration in a reliquary that measures 12 inches wide x 8 inches deep x 16 inches tall and weighs approximately 10-12 lbs. Please select a sturdy table or pedestal on which to place it in or near the sanctuary. Votive candles or flowers may be placed beside the reliquary if preferred. A print of the St Jean Vianney icon, commissioned for the pilgrimage, travels with the relic and is available for display near the reliquary as well. Holy cards with the image and a prayer for priests are provided.

For periods of veneration, prie-dieu may be placed before the relic or the reliquary may go behind an altar rail to allow the faithful to kneel in prayer. Sacramentals (rosaries, medals, holy cards, etc.) may be touched to the reliquary. Each venue may determine how to maintain a “flow” of veneration.

There are no prescribed or required liturgies or prayers during the relic visit. Each venue, within the time parameters, should plan according to local customs and preferences. Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours, along with litanies, the Rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy are options. The Sacrament of Penance is also commonly offered while the relic is present.
If the relic is to be received initially outside a Mass, a celebrant may “greet” the relic at the church or chapel entrance and process it to the sanctuary. Likewise, a procession may escort the relic out at the end of its visit. A celebrant or deacon may use the reliquary to impart a blessing through St Jean Vianney’s intercession.

Permission is requested for local Knights of Columbus to participate in events by providing honor guards, leading prayers, serving as ushers, etc.
All expenses associated with the relic pilgrimage are paid by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council. A K of C-appointed custodian will accompany the relic and has responsibility for its use and safe-keeping. Donations and/or proceeds from collections or freewill offerings are welcome by the Knights of Columbus and will be forwarded entirely to the Shrine at Ars, which generously entrusted the relic to the Supreme Council.

Please make checks payable to “Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc.” with “Vianney” in the memo line and send to the attention of: Mr. Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight, 1 Columbus Plaza, New Haven, CT 06510.
