Sts. Peter and Paul Parish (Gilman) presents a teaching and exposition of Sacred Relics on Thursday May 6 at 6:30 pm.
Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross will be here with an extraordinary Vatican collection of over 150 relics, some as old as 2000 years. (Fr. Carlos has the “largest traveling display, of (sacred) relics in the world”.) Among the treasures will be relics of Sts. Peter and Paul, St. Joseph, St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux (the “Little Flower”), St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Faustina Kowalska. There will also be a portion of the Veil of Our Lady and one of the largest remaining pieces of the True Cross in the world. Those in attendance will be able to examine and venerate each relic. Throughout history, many healings have been worked in the presence of relics; and many have been come about through this ministry. Do not miss this opportunity. You are encouraged to bring your articles of devotion (such as rosaries, metals, holy cards, etc.) and pictures of ill friends/family members, which you will be able to touch to the reliquaries as a means of intercession.

How can I continue to contribute to my parish if there are no Masses?
We are all under greater pressure during these trying days, spiritually, emotionally, and financially. I understand if you are not able to contribute financially as you have in the past, but I ask that you continue to support your church as you are able since these times also place a greater strain on our parishes.
You can continue to contribute to your parish by mailing in your envelope to our office at P.O. Box 86 Gilman, MN 56333 or by making an automatic contribution by filling out the following form. Thank you for your continued support.

-Invite each parishioner to share their time, talent, and treasure with the church.
-Spread the message of Jesus Christ by works of charity, justice, and evangelization.
