Display of the Cathedral reliquary

Newry Cathedral’s reliquary will be on display in the lady chapel for one week only from this weekend until next weekend, inclusive.

The reliquary contains over three hundred relics. Described in ‘The Christian Family Magazine’ as “Irelands Most Precious Reliquary”, this beautiful shrine is exposed for veneration each year to coincide with the feasts of All Saints and All Souls. The relics were collected by Bishop Mulhern, who arranged their setting and layout. The handsome folding oak casement of the shrine was designed and executed by Mr J.H. McAteer, Newry. Together with all the relics enclosed, it was presented to the Cathedral in 1925, by Bishop Mulhern, on the occasion of its Consecration. Be sure to visit the cathedral this week to view them.
