Hold On! She's Coming!

I see from the CTS that the relics of St Therese of Liseux are on their way to Britain in September and October this year. The author of the Little Way to Christian holiness is Patroness of the Missions and a Doctor of the Church. The relic chasse will be visiting cities around the UK.

Please note that dates and venues may be subject to change so check on the website of the Catholic Bishop's Conference of England and Wales, before you plan your pilgrimmage. Contact details for each venue are also on the website. I suspect, however, that unlike Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty, it is unlikely she will pull out of gigs completely and disappoint her fans.
