The Reliquary

The relics of St Thérèse have travelled all over the world. We post this picture to give pilgrims an idea of what the reliquary is like.

When the reliquary comes to the Oxford Oratory (it will be quite a squeeze at the door, but we have measured!) it will be placed below the altar steps. There it will be possible for many people to file past on the flat. The front pews will be turned sideways on to the reliquary to allow for a more prolonged stop where visitors can kneel or sit in prayer.

We hope there will be a constant vigil of prayer by the old and the young, the faithful, religious, deacons and priests.
