St Antony’s Church Forest Gate-Sunday 26th June to Tuesday 28th June

St Anthony relics will be visiting Ireland and the UK in the form of two relics, one of which is the one Pope Francis venerated sixteen years ago in Argentina. Earlier, in 1995, during the 800th anniversary of St Anthony’s birth, the relic travelled also to Portugal and was received by Sister Lucia, one of the three seers of Fatima, in the Carmelite Convent in Coimbra.  The relics will be accompanied by Fr Mario Conte, editor of the Messenger of St Anthony, the magazine published by the Conventual Franciscan Friars of Saint Anthony’s Basilica in Padua, Italy, where the Saint lies in his Tomb.
