Details: This tour, designed as an introduction to the observance of a world-wide Extraordinary Holy Year of Mercy, will run from September 21 through November 13 and visit locations in 16 states and 25 dioceses across the country. It is the first time that the Relics of St. Maria Goretti, an immensely popular saint, have traveled to the United States, and only the second time that they have been taken on pilgrimage outside of St. Maria’s native land of Italy. Presentations on the life and virtues of St. Maria Goretti, the youngest person (she died at the age of 11) ever to be canonized by the Church, are also planned for the day.
