Experience of the Sacred Relics

Treasures of the Church is a ministry of evangelization of the Catholic Church


Experience of the Sacred Relics

Father Carlos uses multi-media to give a teaching on the Church's use of relics that is scriptural, catechetical, and devotional, leading to a renewal of the Catholic faith for many people. After the teaching, an exposition of relics gives the faithful an opportunity to venerate some of their favorite saints.


Encounter with the Living God

The veneration of relics is a communion with the heroes of our Christian faith, asking for their powerful intercession. Many people have reported outstanding blessings and conversions through this ministry, and many have reported healings.
