As a part of our 20th Anniversary Celebration theme, “Together on a Journey to Sainthood,” we’re bringing saints to YOU every month through “Relic Saints.”
“Relic Saints” provides a month-long opportunity to venerate a real, first-class relic of a different saint each month in our Omaha and Lincoln studios.
You’ll also receive a FREE prayer card specific to the Relic Saint you’re visiting!

About May’s Saints
St. Peregrine was born in 1260 at Forlì, Italy to an affluent family. He lived a comfortable life as a youth, and politically opposed the papacy. After he experienced the forgiveness of St. Philip Benizi, he changed his life and joined the Servite order. He was ordained a priest, and later returned to his home to establish a Servite community. There he was widely known for his preaching, penances, and counsel in the confessional. He was cured of cancer, after he received a vision of Christ on the cross reaching out His hand to touch his impaired limb. He died in 1345 and was canonized in 1726. He is the patron of cancer patients. -Courtesy EWTN
