Venerate the relics of St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher

Celebrate the lives of two saints who exemplified courage and conviction in the face of persecution. Ss. Thomas More and John Fisher were prominent 16th century Englishmen who were martyred for standing up for their faith. Their witness provides a courageous example of how to proclaim the truth boldly in the face of threats to religious liberty. Be inspired by their lives and ask their intercession for our country during the Fortnight for Freedom!

Mass with Bishop Olmsted will be celebrated on Thursday, June 30th at 12 p.m.at St. Mary’s Basilica. Relics of the saints will be available for veneration at St. Mary’s Basilica following Mass from 1-2 p.m. and at Ss. Simon and Jude Cathedral from 6-8 p.m.
